On November 8, 1960 when the general election was held, Kennedy had to compete with Richard Nixon and as a result won the election.

The president experienced global events such as Cuban Missile crisis (1962), construction of the Berlin Wall (1961), communism in Latin America, creation of the Peace Corps, and the dangerous nuclear weapon era.
