Thursday marked the 10th anniversary of the death of President Ronald Reagan, and former Rep. J.D. Hayworth of Arizona says the 40th president will be remembered because of the work he did to help end the Cold War.

"Perhaps the most eloquent assessment of Ronald Reagan came from a woman living in my congressional district," Hayworth recounted on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV.

"She had grown up behind the Iron Curtain and when I returned home following the services for Reagan in the National Cathedral and, of course, in California there at the Ronald Wilson Reagan Presidential Library, this woman said, as it was related to me, 'President Lincoln freed America's slaves. President Reagan freed the slaves of Eastern Europe,'" the Newsmax TV host said.

Story continues below video.



"And when you think about what transpired with victory in the Cold War and in typical direct Reagan language and style, when asked, 'Sir do you have a strategy for winning the Cold War?'" Hayworth explained. "The president remarked, 'You bet. We win. They lose.'"

"And in the final analysis, that is why history will remember Ronald Wilson Reagan, the 40th president of the United States."
