Biden: 'New World Order' Is Coming
Democrat speaks of 'significant opportunities' in current world events
Democrat Joe Biden has said that a "new world order" is coming that "we've got to lead."
Biden made the remarks during a speech at the Business Roundtable’s CEO Quarterly Meeting on Monday.
He said that “significant opportunities” have emerged from current world events that are going to lead to a “new world order.”
The remarks came toward the end of his brief speech where he talked about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
He also spoke of America’s economic future amid his administration’s push to implement a leftist climate agenda.
"I think this presents us with some significant opportunities to make some real changes," Biden told the audience.
"You know, we are at an inflection point, I believe, in the world economy, not just the world economy, in the world, occurs every three or four generations," Biden continued.
"As one of my, as one of the top military people said to me in a secure meeting the other day, 60 million people died between 1900 and 1946 and since then we established a liberal world order and that hadn’t happened in a long while.
"A lot of people died, but nowhere near the chaos.
"And now’s the time when things are shifting.
"We’re going, there’s gonna be a new world order out there and we’ve got to lead it and we’ve got to unite the rest of the free world and doing it.”

Biden’s remarks come as war broke out in Europe a month ago when Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered his forces to invade Ukraine.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky pinned the blame for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on Biden’s refusal to enact sanctions against Moscow before Putin launched the invasion.
Zelensky told Senators that if the U.S. “had started sanctions months ago, there would not have been war.”
Reuters noted just a few days before the invasion that Biden was “refus[ing] to unleash sanctions on Russia” until Putin has already invaded, despite numerous officials, including Zelensky, saying that the sanctions could stop the invasion from happening.
"You tell me 100% that there will be war in a few days’ time,” Zelensky said before the invasion.
"What are you waiting for?
"We will not need your sanctions after there is a bombardment, or after our state is shot at, or if we have no more borders, we do not have an economy, or parts of our state is occupied.”
Zelensky also appeared to take a separate shot at Biden in late February, saying that “the world’s most powerful forces are watching from afar” as Ukraine was forced to defend itself.
