Ronald Reagan, who was an American politician and actor, was born on the 6th of February in 1911 in Tampico, Illinois. Ronald Reagan served the United States as the fortieth president during the period from 1981 to 1989. Before becoming the President of the United States, Ronald Reagan served as the thirty-third Governor of California from 1967 to 1975.
Ronald Reagan was born and grew up in a small town in Illinois, and graduated from the Eureka College and after that he worked as a radio anchor. In 1937, Ronald Reagan moved to Hollywood, where he started his career as a performer, initially in movies and later on in television. Ronald Reagan served as the Screen Actors Guild’s President and later, he served as a General Electric spokesman. Ronald Reagan entered his political career when he was working for General Electric. At first, Ronald Reagan was an associate of the Democratic Party, but because of the shifting platforms of the party during the 1950s, he moved to the Republican Party during 1962.
Subsequent to delivering a speech in 1964 in favor of the presidential candidacy of Barry Goldwater, a five-term US Senator from Arizona and a businessman, Ronald Reagan was influenced to look for the California governorship, winning after two years and again during 1970. Ronald Reagan was overcome during his run for the Republican presidential proposal in 1968 and again in 1976, but Ronald Reagan won both the proposal and general election during 1980, overcoming the incumbent, Jimmy Carter.
As president of the United States, Ronald Reagan had put sweeping new economic and political initiatives into practice. His supply-side moneymaking policies, called Reaganomics, advocated plummeting tax rates to encourage economic development, controlling the cash supply to lessen inflation, plummeting government expenditure and deregulation of the economy. During his first presidential term, Ronald Reagan survived an assassination effort, took an inflexible line in opposition to labor unions, raised the War on Drugs, and ordered an attack on Grenada to overturn a Communist coup.
Ronald Reagan was elected again as the President of America in a landslide during the 1984 presidential election, declaring that it was "Morning in the United States". His second presidential tenure was chiefly marked by overseas matters, like the 1986 bombing of Libya, the conclusion of the Cold War and the exposure of the Iran–Contra matter. Openly relating the Soviet Union as a wicked kingdom, Ronald Reagan went in favor of anti-communist movements all over the world and he spent his first tenure, relinquishing the plan of detente in support of rollback by escalating a weapons race with the Soviet Union. Subsequently, Ronald Reagan negotiated with Mikhail Gorbachev, the Soviet General Secretary, culminating in the INF Accord and the shrink of the nuclear arsenals of both countries. Soon afterward, the closure of the Soviet Union and the fall of the Berlin Wall occurred.
In 1989, Ronald Reagan left office and in 1994, the earlier president revealed that he had been identified with advanced Alzheimer's disease. Ronald Reagan died ten years later at the age of 93. A traditional icon, Ronald Reagan ranks highly on community opinion surveys of the United States Presidents and is accredited for creating an ideological movement or an example shift on the political right of America.
