Rep. Dana Rohrabacher: Reagan’s Staff Tried to Stop Him from Saying “Tear Down This Wall”

Dana Rohrabacher

Ronald Reagan, when he went to the Berlin Wall and he said, “Tear down this wall,” it changed history and made our country safe for decades ahead. I did not write those remarks, but I am very proud that I helped smuggle those remarks to the President of the United States so that he had the option of saying it. And of course, once he read those remarks, he was bound to say it, even though his senior staff tried to prevent him from doing so.

—Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R–CA)
