Just like Hitler and Vladimir, the first thing Trump went after was the Free Press. They are the foundation of a democracy, that's why dictators and wanna be dictators go after the press. Unfortunately, Trump's low IQ supporters cannot figure this out. Therefore, they pose a major threat to our democracy.

That is what he The Donald doesn't like, the truth being told. He wants to control the press to write just what lies he wants printed.
If anyone does not see this as a dictator like other Countries w/dictators who control the press and radio they are really lost and can't be saved. Once if ever The Donald becomes a Dictator they will then be sorry and realize what a mistake they made because we will ALL then become ONE under his rule, no party , just him.
I for one am scared this is where our Country is headed, and The Republicans are helping him without even realizing it.

President Trump said that "fake" news,(and lists CNN and NBC) are "the Country's biggest enemy." This sounds like something a dictator would say. Remember what Supreme Court's Justice Black said in 1971: "The founding fathers gave the free press the protection it must have to fulfill its essentail role in our democracy. The press is to serve the governed, not the governors. Only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deceptioin in government. Paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from deceiving the people."
