A reporter was ejected from the room just before U.S. President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin began their joint press conference Monday at the Helsinki summit.

The man reportedly works for The Nation, according to an on-air report from Fox News.

According to several reporters on the ground, the man held up a sign saying “Nuclear Weapons Ban,” which prompted his removal.

Video posted by Axios’ Jonathan Swan showed a security official fighting over the sign with the man, who resisted surrendering the contraband.

It took four security guards to remove the reporter from the press area and out of the room.
