During World War 2, Adolf Hitler was the dictator of Germany
  • Dictator-someone who has absolute power over a country. In some cases, dictators personally make all decisions regarding that specific country.
  • President-a leader of an organization, company, trade union, university or country
  • Prime Minister - 1)a chief minister appointed by a ruler  2)the head of the cabinet and often the chief executive of a parliamentary democracy
which means our president has to be voted (or elected) into office, but a dictator can just take over the country without any authorization from others.
