Ronald Reagan was an American politician and served as the 40th president of the USA from 1981 to 1989. Before his presidency, Reagan acted in Hollywood films. He also served as the 33rd governor of California from 1967 to 1975.
Reagan contested the 1980 presidential election as the Republican nominee and defeated the incumbent president, Jimmy Carter. At the time of his first inauguration, Reagan was 69 years, 349 days old. He was the oldest person to assume the U.S. presidency until 2017 when Donald Trump was inaugurated at age 70 years, 220 days. Reagan ran for re-election in 1984 and won the contest with 525, or 97.6% of the 538 electoral votes, second-most lopsided presidential election in modern U.S. history after Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1936 victory.
Reagan was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest honour that the United States can bestow, from President George H. W. Bush on January 18, 1993. In 1998, Washington National Airport was renamed Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport on the occasion of Reagan’s 87th birthday. In 2005, the United States Postal Service issued a commemorative postage stamp in his honour. The same year, Reagan topped Discovery Channel’s pole for The Greatest American.
