Domestic policy
Domestically, Ford faced the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. A controversial assessment was caused by Ford’s decision to pardon his predecessor Nixon (September 8, 1974) for all the crimes, revealed and undetected, that he could have committed during his presidency. Since the impeachment procedure for Nixon in the US Senate did not have time to begin due to his resignation, the president had the right to such a pardon. Several assassination attempts were made on Ford. In the 1976 elections, he managed to hardly get the nomination from his party in the primaries (ahead of Ronald Reagan), in the end he was defeated by Democrat Jimmy Carter. After the end of his presidential term, Gerald Ford worked for a long time at the American Enterprise Institute

Foreign policy
Ford’s short reign was marked by the continuation of the policy of detente in relations with the USSR; thus, he signed the Helsinki Accords, paid a visit to the Soviet Union and met with Brezhnev in Vladivostok. In 1975 the Vietnam War ended: the forces of the North captured South Vietnam
