RONALD REAGAN

Ronald Reagan began his career as an actor, first in films and later television, appearing in 52 movie productions and gaining enough success to become a household name.

 

As president, Reagan implemented sweeping new political and economic initiatives. In his first term he survived an assassination attempt, took a hard line against labor unions, and ordered military actions in Grenada. He was re-elected in 1984. His second term was primarily marked by foreign matters, namely the ending of the Cold War, the bombing of Libya, and the revelation of the Iran-Contra affair. Publicly He supported anti-Communist movements worldwide and spent his first term forgoing the strategy of détente by ordering a massive military buildup in an arms race with the USSR. Reagan negotiated with Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev, culminating in the INF Treaty and the decrease of both countries' nuclear arsenals.
