Sam Husseni, who was covering the Trump-Putin summit on behalf of The Nation Magazine, was kicked out before the news conference between the world leaders.
Husseni was holding a sign reading “Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty” was kicked out of the room inside the Presidential Palace in Helsinki. He is the communications director of a Washington non-profit who was covering the Trump-Putin summit in Finland on behalf of the magazine The Nation.
Here’s a video of the incident shows Husseini holding the sign before security quickly grabbed him and forcibly took him out of the venue.

A Secret Service spokesman said that the man caused a “disturbance” after returning to his seat and “was physically removed from the room by Presidential Palace security personnel.”
Reporters have an obligation to stay out of the way of the story. So, he isn’t a reporter but an interloper. Plenty of good men and women can tell the story without becoming a part of it. It’s why folks don’t believe anything anymore.
I say that the security acted properly in this case!
