A picture circulating the internet showing a large crowd at a President Donald Trump rally in Phoenix wasn't actually a picture taken there—it was a picture taken of the 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers parade.
So when Trump supporters and Tennessee Republicans started sharing a large crowd of people at a Trump rally in Phoenix on Twitter, skepticism starting brewing.
The social media world started fact-checking the handle @TEN_GOP. The account is not affiliated with the Tennessee Republican Party.
After users on social media started calling out the falseness of the picture, the account deleted the picture.

The real photo of the massive crowd was an aerial shot of the parade in Cleveland celebrating the Cavaliers winning the NBA championship in 2016.
Just did a reverse search and the image on the left is from 2016 Cavs parade. Liars! pic.twitter.com/5erHsY7bGa
