A reporter was forcefully ejected from the press room where President Trump and Vladimir Putin's joint news conference took place Monday.

Sam Husseini, a writer for "The Nation," held up a sign that read "Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty" as other members of the press snapped photos of him.

After an official unsuccessfully attempted to swipe the paper out of Husseini's hand, Husseini was removed by multiple Secret Service officers.

Fox News chief White House correspondent John Roberts said that members of the press are allowed to ask pointed questions during news conferences, but are not permitted to hold up signs or make statements.

"It's pretty clear that he came in here to make a statement," Roberts said of Husseini.

Roberts added that Husseini had previously been removed from the room and talked to, but was then brought back inside.
