The large banner was placed near the top of the Trump Towers building in the large city of Istanbul in the northern part of the country.
This response by the unnamed businesswoman comes just days after the U.S. announced that they were sanctioning some Turkish officials over the detention of the American pastor Andrew Brunson.
Brunson, who had been living in Turkey for years, was detained by the Turkish authorities for allegedly supporting the 2016 coup against Erdogan.
Recently, the American pastor was moved from a prison to his home, where he will remain under house arrest until his case is settled.
