It is being reported that the UN is hurting for cash. They are calling on member countries to tender their payments or they risk going broke.

According to Town Hall:

United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres is sounding the alarm to members about the world body’s “troubling financial situation,” urging them to pay up.

“Our cash flow has never been this low so early in the calendar year, and the broader trend is also concerning; we are running out of cash sooner and staying in the red longer,” he said in a letter to staff, reports


“Late payment has an impact obviously on our cash flow. It may have an impact on our ability to deliver mandates,” he told reporters. 

One former U.S. diplomat at the U.N. suggested other member states may be dragging their feet on payments over the perception that the U.S. has backed away from its commitments.  

Trump has threatened to pull certain types of funding from the UN as questions arise about the necessity of the organization.
