Rick Santorum deflected jabs about his 2008 speech saying that "Satan has set his sights on the United States" by comparing his comments to Ronald Reagan branding the Soviet Union an "evil empire."

At a rally in Phoenix,  the former Pennsylvania senator said that Polish Solidarity leader Lech Walesa had said  that "yes there are there are forces of evil in the world. Walesa had wondered about the days when "America would stand up and call evil by its name," the Daily Mail reports.

"Ronald Reagan did that. Ronald Reagan called the Soviet Union an evil empire and the media went 'how dare you, how dare you' ascribe terms like good and evil to regimes?"

"Because Ronald Reagan told the truth. He didn't sugarcoat it. He went out and called it the way it was. He went out and promoted the values of our country."
