The journalist from US political publication The Nation disrupted the meeting holding a banner that read 'Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty'
A journalist has been dragged out of the Trump-Putin press conference by Secret Service agents after protesting over America's use of nuclear weapons.
Political journalist and activist Sam Husseini got into a scuffle with security forces in Helskini, Finland, as Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump addressed journalists.
Husseini, who writes for The Nation, held up a sign saying 'Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty' as he disrupted the conference just before the two leaders were set to take questions from the press.
Security officials had reportedly asked Husseini to leave the room earlier, and at that point he left peacefully.
However, he then suddenly returned carrying a hand-written sign - which Russian authorities reportedly called a "malicious item."

Trump-Putin: Journalist Sam Husseini dragged out of press conference in Finland by Secret Service in protest over nuclear weapons
When you start protesting, you’re no longer a “journalist.”
What a professional display! No bias shown.....
What a name ...
When you start protesting, youre no longer a journalist.
Yep, not supposed to become the story...
What an idiot! Lookitme! Im important!
He couldnt have just stayed and ASKED them for a ban treaty when it was his turn to ask?
Thats what real activist journalists do.
I was hoping to read Jim Acosta was the one removed by the secret service. Maybe next time, Jim.
Brings to mind the thought WHEN were nuclear bombs used in war other than Hiroshima, and Nagasaki? Curious.
Did they take a question from cnn?
got into a scuffle with security forces
Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty?
WTF does that even mean? Idiot...
He's a propagandist, in short.
One of these days one of these “journalists” is going to try to be a martyr.
Trump doesn’t appear to be taking his personal safety very seriously. The Greenpeace guy should have been shot down by agents for example. F’n crazy people are coming out of the woodwork, and of course NONE of them are getting harsh treatment.
And if you work for The Nation, you never were a “journalist.” :-)
and now The Nation should be permanently banned from all Trump press functions ...
I told my wife this as it was happening.
Bingo! He could have far more effective asking the question rather than grandstanding. That tells m2 he didn’t really care about the issue in a serious way but just wanted attention.
“...and now The Nation should be permanently banned from all Trump press functions ...”
Yep and hopefully they’ll include the complete revocation of White House press credentials as well...
