WATCH: Joe Biden comment on “new world order” goes viral

A video where US President Joe Biden said during a White House address that a “new world order” was coming amid the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine has gone viral on social media.

The video has racked up millions of views across several platforms.

“You know, we are at an inflection point, I believe, in the world economy,” he said.

“And not just the world economy, but the world. It occurs every three or four generations.”

Biden went on to assert that while the early 20th century saw great suffering and bloodshed, this pattern was replaced by a “liberal world order” which saw significantly less conflict.

“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,” said Biden.

“Since then we’ve established a liberal world order, and that hasn’t happened in a long while. A lot of people have died, but nowhere near the chaos.”

However, Biden said that the situation was “shifting.”

“Now is the time when things are shifting,” he said.

“There’s going to 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 in doing it.”

The statements seem to echo former US President George Bush Snr., who said that the 1991 Persian Gulf war was about “more than one small country; it is a big idea; a new world order.”

This, Bush said, represented “new ways of working with other nations…peaceful settlement of disputes, solidarity against aggression, reduced and controlled arsenals and just treatment of all peoples.”

One Ukrainian MP, Kira Rudyk, leader of the Voice party, told Fox News early in the conflict that “We know that we fight not only for Ukraine. We fight for this new world order for the democratic countries,” claiming that the Ukraine was the “sheild of Europe.”
