He claimed a day after the inauguration that Trump had "the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe."

In an April briefing, Spicer again sparked controversy when he said Nazi leader Adolf Hitler did not use chemical weapons on his own people during World War II when discussing Syrian President Bashar Assad's chemical attack on civilians. He later apologized for those remarks.

He told The New York Times in September he regretted the exchange with reporters over the inauguration crowd size.

Spicer stepped down from the White House post in August, calling his service in the Trump administration "the honor of a lifetime."
