Foreign Policy 1970-1988

President Nixon kicked off the groundbreaking foreign policy changes in the 1970s. Nixon's foreign policy focused on ending the Vietnam War, the United States's relationship with the Soviet Union and Russia, and the arms race.

Ronald Reagan came into the White House in 1981 and, during his two terms in office, implemented foreign policy that still has ramifications today. One of Reagan's main interests was stopping the spread of communism and focused his attention on the Soviet Union, Latin America, and South Africa.
