Charles Krauthammer was born in the city of New York; his father was from Ukraine and his mother Belgian, both Orthodox Jews, so he and his brother received a rigorous Jewish education at a Hebrew school. The family moved to Montreal, Canada, where Krauthammer did all his schooling, then enrolled at McGill University, in Montreal, from where he graduated with 1st Class Honors in 1970, majoring in political science and economics. In 1971, he became a political commonwealth scholar at Balliol College Oxford, in the UK, before eventually returning to the US where he attended Harvard School for a Medical Course. During the first year of medical school, he suffered a diving board accident that left most parts of his body paralyzed, since when he has been confined to a wheelchair.

The unfortunate events did not deter Krauthammer from achieving his dreams. He continued with his studies after 14 months of hospitalization, graduating in 1975. The same year, he became a resident in psychiatry working for Massachusetts general Hospital until 1978, and then moved to work in psychiatric research in Washington, DC. In 1981, he started writing for The New Republican on political issues, also serving as a vice-president and a speech writer in the company, and he was offered the position as an editor too. In 1983 began writing essays for Time magazine; one of the essays, ‘Reagan Doctrine,’ gave him the exposure he wanted, bringing him national acclaim. His net worth was beginning to climb significantly.

His main agenda was promoting democracy in all regions of the Middle East.

Regardless, in a press conference in 2010, former US president Bill Clinton called him a brilliant man.
