President Nixon’s opening to China, including his historic 1972 visit, was the public result of sensitive diplomatic initiatives. Former members of the National Security Council staff discuss their behind-the-scenes efforts as well as the ramifications for the United States and its allies. Jonathan Howe, Winston Lord, Nicholas Platt, and Richard Solomon form the panel moderated by Fox News National Security Analyst K. T. McFarland.
Marking 40 years since President Nixon’s resignation, the Richard Nixon Foundation and the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum are releasing unedited June 1983 footage of the 37th President – in his own words – chronicling his final days in the White House with former White House aide Frank Gannon.
Each video in the series — entitled “A President Resigns” — is divided up by day and will be published in real time, the day on which the events happened 40 years ago. The series launches Tuesday, August 5 and will continue through Saturday, August 9.
The general public is invited to follow the story as it unfolds daily and engage on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube using the hashtag #APresidentResigns.
