Man dragged out of Trump-Putin news conference

A man has been dragged out of the Trump-Putin news conference, moments before the leaders were due to speak.

In the clip, the apparent security guard, who was wearing an ear-piece, tries to grab the paper off the grey-haired man before taking him away.
