    White House economic adviser Brian Deese suggested the pain at the pump
    was a price Americans had to pay for the "future of the liberal world
    order," in a CNN interview on Thursday.

    "CNN Newsroom" host Victor Blackwell played a clip of President Biden
    telling a reporter at Thursday's NATO Summit that Americans can
    continue to pay a premium for gas "as long as it takes" to win the war
    in Ukraine.

    Blackwell asked Deese how the White House would respond to Americans
    worried that they won't be able to survive paying close to or over $5 a
    gallon, potentially for "years" to come.

    Deese initially responded, "What you heard from the president today was
    a clear articulation of the stakes. This is about the future of the
    liberal world order, and we have to stand firm." The comment caused a
    stir on social media.
