Executing command (screen) right after SSH login

Hi, I'm trying to start a screen session automatically right after I log into a server. I thought it was possible like this:

ssh -i [KEYFILE] [USER]@[HOST] "screen -d -r"

But this snippet logs out instantly after execution with the error "Must be connected to a terminal".

This is possible with PuTTY, but that application is janky to say the least.

Is this possible using only the standard CLI?

Please try

ssh -t -i [KEYFILE] [USER]@[HOST] "screen -d -r"

Much appreciated, I've spent days searching for a solution. I guess the manpage had the answer all along. Thank you for your time.
