Ronald Reagan was an American politician, commentator, and actor, who served as the 40th President of the United States from 1981 to 1989. Prior to his presidency, he served as the 33rd Governor of CA from 1967 to 1975, following a career as an actor and union leader in Hollywood.
President Ronald Reagan helped redefine the purpose of government and pressured the Soviet Union to end the Cold War. He solidified the conservative agenda for decades after his presidency.
Domestically, President Reagan advanced policies that reduced social programs and restrictions on business. Tax cuts were implemented to stimulate the economy. He advocated for increases in military spending, reductions in certain social programs, and measures to deregulate business. By 1983, the nation's economy had begun to recover and entered a 7 year period of prosperity.
Critics charged that his policies had actually increased the deficit and hurt the middle class and poor. In 1981, Reagan made history by appointing Sandra Day O'Connor as the first woman to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The most pressing foreign policy issue of Ronald Reagan's first term was the Cold War. Dubbing the Soviet Union "the evil empire," Reagan embarked on a massive build-up of U.S. weapons and troops. He implemented the "Reagan Doctrine," which provided aid to anti-communist movements in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
