After the election of 1968, the United States had elected a new president, Richard Nixon.
Nixon wanted to put America back on its feet, to regain stability throughout the nation.
Once America put a man on the moon, the Soviets knew they didn't stand a chance in the race.
and thats what Nixon intended to do! He first put an end to the space race with the United Staes biggest rival at the time, the Soviet Union.
Nixon then went to Moscow to meet with the leader of the Soviets where they agreed on a Détente (a release of tension) for a short period of time.
Tennis anyone? I'm a champ when it comes to both tennis AND table tennis!
After creating a brief time of peace with the Soviets, Nixon used the popular sport of table tennis to reopen the doors with China. The Ping Pong Diplomacy was a success and gave Nixon a lot of popularity after he visited China.
For his next order of business, Nixon decided to start ending the Vietnam situation by withdrawing American troops.
