Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump makes a statement during his speech in Mystere at Treasure Island during another campaign stop in Las Vegas on Thursday, October 08, 2015.

Billionaire presidential candidate Donald Trump is suing over where he slept during a recent Las Vegas campaign stop.

Trump's companies that own the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas with fellow billionaire Phil Ruffin filed a federal lawsuit against the Culinary Workers Union and Bartenders Union on Oct. 14 accusing the groups of saying he stayed overnight at Ruffin's unionized Treasure Island casino-resort instead of his own Trump Hotel.

The Culinary Union has been pushing to unionize Trump's hotel.

The trademark lawsuit says the unions distributed a flyer stating that "when Donald Trump stays in Las Vegas, he stays at a union hotel."

Not so, say Trump's lawyers who say the Republican presidential candidate stayed at the Trump hotel Oct. 7 and Oct. 8 before speaking inside the Treasure Island.
