It was the second time in a little over a year that Biden has used the term “new world order” to describe his vision for America’s role in the world, the earlier one being his April 5, 2013, address to the 38th Annual Conference of the Export-Import Bank of the United States in Washington, D.C. In that speech, Biden maintained that “the affirmative task we have now is to actually create a new world order.”
Even earlier, the phrase was used by President George H.W. Bush in his televised speech on the Iraq situation before a joint session of Congress on September 11, 1990, where he said: “Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective — a new world order — can emerge.”
Yes, we were warned. Did we truly understand the words that were being spoken?
