US President Joe Biden has sent conspiracy theorists into overdrive after he referred to 'a new world order' at a business briefing.
The American leader told audiences that the coronavirus pandemic has presented America's elite with 'significant opportunities to make some real changes' and position themselves to lead 'a new world order'.
His comments came towards the end of a speech where he discussed Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the US economy.
“I think this presents us with some significant opportunities to make some real changes," Biden said.
"You know, we are at an inflection point, I believe, in the world economy,... that occurs every three or four generations."
Biden then went on to explain how one of his 'top military people' told the US President recently that '60 million people died between 1900 and 1946' and after that a 'liberal world order' was established and 'that hadn’t happened in a long while'.
Ears of conspiracy theorists were likely already starting to prick up at the US President's comments, but here's when things kicked up a notch on the tin-foil hat version of the richter scale.
"Now’s the time when things are shifting," Biden said.
"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.”
As soon as those three words were uttered all in a row, the internet lit up with theorists claiming Biden has now effectively confirmed the existence of New World Order.
For those of you who don't know, the New World Order theory differs depending on who you ask.
Essentially, the crux of the theory is that there is 'a secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian one-world government'.
Under the conspiracy, all sovereign nations would be combined into one globally represented brand and we will all have to bow to one ruler.
Twitter users are claiming the comment proves that Biden's policies are 'motivated by the promotion and creation of Globalism and a New World Order'.
So it's time to grab your tin-foil hat (if you have one) and wait for the fact checkers to do their work.Featured Image Credit: White House/Alamy
