MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle speculated that journalists were being cherry-picked by President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin to be removed from their joint press conference Monday, after a journalist who seemed to plan on protesting the event was escorted out.

Sam Husseini from The Nation was forcibly escorted out of President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin’s press conference, before the two leaders took the stage on Monday.

“What if what we’re witnessing is journalist being cherry-picked and being asked to leave the room?” Ruhle asked, as Secret Service escorted Husseini out of the room.

Axios reported that Husseini had a sign that read “Nuclear Weapons Ban.”

NBC News reported that Husseini had been handing out an op-ed to fellow reporters earlier in the day, which called for Russia and the United States to “reach common ground to safeguard common interests.
