RONALD REAGAN speech Tear Down This Wall! Tear down the Berlin Wall!

Has been a classic US President ever since.

The speech is commonly known by a key line from the middle part: “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” Reagan called for the General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, to open the Berlin Wall, which had encircled West Berlin since 1961. Though some historians say that Reagan’s speech received relatively little media coverage at the time, seeking to diminish its importance,[4] the following day The New York Times carried his picture on the front page, below the title “Reagan Calls on Gorbachev to Tear Down the Berlin Wall”. Its impact on the Kremlin became widely known after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.[5] In the post-Cold War era, it was often seen as one of the most memorable performances of an American president in Berlin after John F. Kennedy’s “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech of 1963.[6] It was written by Peter Robinson—then a speechwriter for the President—who currently hosts the Uncommon Knowledge program of the Hoover Institution.
