We present a search for pair production of a new massive vector-like top quark with charge 2/3 in single, double, and multi-lepton final states. Vector-like tops of this type have three decay channels: T → Wb, T→ tH(125GeV), T → tZ. Data were collected by the CMS detector in 2015-2016 from 13 TeV proton-proton collisions at the LHC. We set 95% confidence limits on the lower limit of vector-like top quark mass for various combinations of T quark decay branching fractions.
