While speaking with corporate leaders from some of America’s largest companies, President Joe Biden affirmed his faith in the “new world order.”
“We’re at an inflection point, I believe, in the world economy, not just the world economy, the world, that occurs every three or four generations,” the president said, “[A general told me] that 60 million people died between 1900 and 1946 and since then we’ve established a liberal world order, and it hasn’t happened in a long while.”
“And now is a time when things are shifting,” Biden continued, “We’re going to — 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.”

According to a transcript of Biden’s address released by the White House, the discussion emphasized the need for American companies to continue working with the White House in “reducing costs and a whole lot more” while accounting for the ongoing disruptions to agricultural markets and energy production.
The president applauded American corporations for assisting American leftists to further their radical social messaging across the globe as they “innovate with and for diversity.”
Biden said, “I’m pleased to see American companies stepping up and doing their part.”
Biden’s address also patted the transnational business leaders on the back for their role in decimating the Russian economy in response to Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
“You did a hell of a lot to help us impose sanctions and incur costs,” the president said to the room full of CEOs. “We’re seeing now that it mattered. It was really important what you all did.”
The president was also very optimistic about the future of American manufacturing. He asked for America’s business leaders to “invest in America itself in manufacturing.”
“As one of my colleagues from the Midwest said: We’re not going to talk about the Rust Belt any more,” Biden said. “We’re going to talk about new, expanded manufacturing capacity in the Middle — in the Middle Atlantics — excuse me, in the Midwest.”
Biden called on business leaders to “invest in America itself — in manufacturing, climate resilience, clean energy — so America can win the competition in the 21st century.”
He referred to Intel’s recent $20 billion investment in Ohio as an event that will help bring about this goal.
“Intel is investing $20 million — billion in a semiconductor campus in Ohio. … The point is: These are [history-making] investments.”
