Who is Richard Nixon?

He was born in 1913 in California.

When he was young, he applied to join the United States Navy, and fought against Japan. After WWII, he started to work as a politician of the Republican Party.

In 1969, he was inaugurated as President of the United States.

He was particularly active on the diplomatic front.
He ended American involvement in Vietnam.
He visited China.
He initiated detente with the Soviet Union.

He was inaugurated twice, but during the second term of his office, he was involved in the Watergate Scandal.

He became the only U.S. president to resign from office.

If you want to know about the Watergate Scandal, I recommend watching the movie “All the President’s Men”, starring Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman.

He died in 1994. Because of Watergate, a few people have a high opinion of him.
