It’s pretty shocking how close this guy got to the president. You can see the protester hidden in the press pool at the bottom of the frame, throwing the Russian flags at Trump.

This is not the first time that Clayton has protested Trump with Russian flags, as he handed out Russian flags with “Trump” written on them at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
We’ll keep you posted if more unfolds from this story.
