Watch The Moment Sean Spicer Admits Donald Trump Is A Dictator
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer spoke last December during a panel discussion where he talked about what separates democracy and dictatorship.
Spicer said that press access is part of what makes a democracy different than a dictatorship.
“There is a big difference between a campaign where it is a private venue using private funds, and a government entity,” Spicer said when asked about banning media organizations in the future.
“And I think we have a respect for the press when it comes to the government. That is something that you can’t ban … Conservative, liberal or otherwise, I think that’s what makes democracy a democracy versus a dictatorship.”

This comes as a concern and raises the question; is Trump a dictator?
This because the White House Banned several media outlets Friday from attendinga Spicer’s off-camera question-and-answer session inside his West Wing office.
Trump has also attacked the free press on multiple occasions, and even went as far as to calling the media, “the enemy of the people.”
“A few days ago I called the fake news the enemy of the people, and they are — they are the enemy of the people,” the president said during his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday.
