Let's talk about the role the U. N. has played this year especially in the impeachment inquiry yes in twenty nineteen made the United Nations the location of the year in terms of breaking news as the place where president trump was set to meet with world leaders including the Ukraine president when the news of a whistle blower emerged as president trump was in New York for a speech for the U. N. General Assembly the White House released information about the now infamous July call leaving Ukraine officials scrambling here it to you and to answer questions on the morning of their name what was then their new president's address to world leaders and the trump Zelinsky press encountered them took place we had I think moods a phone call to us normal we spoke about many things mandate so so I think from you or at is that nobody bullshit bullshit me yes hello no pressure meanwhile Pam as you've reported the U. N. is having its own money issues what's going on the US is the largest contributor to the United Nations and the US often pays late and does pony up with twenty percent of the entire U. N. budget roughly ten billion dollars but the V. is U. N. secretary general in October sent out alarm signals so did you win was in a cash flow crisis in part because they were not certain about the U. S. contribution by far the largest to the world body and by paying late and the U. S. has withheld funds from some of the voluntary organizations that the U. N. needs money for and so the U. S. was about two point four billion dollars in arrears to the peacekeeping budget now that wasn't just the trump administration it also comes from before but the trump administration has said they will pay most of their regular budget fees the problem is the lack of dedication or at least the perceived lack of dedication to the United Nations from the trump administration CBS news foreign affairs analyst Pam Falk at the United Nations.
