United Nations strapped for cash as US refuses to pay dues

With a Wednesday morning tweet, U.S. President Donald Trump cast a global spotlight on the United Nations' multimillion-dollar funding crisis and the over $1 billion in budget payments the United States owes the world body.

In response to a CBS News report that United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres sent a letter Monday to the 37,000 employees at the U.N. Secretariat notifying them of the deficit, Trump tweeted, "So make all Member Countries pay, not just the United States!"

CBS, which obtained Guterres' letter, reported Tuesday that the U.N. chief expressed concerns about being unable to cover staffers' salaries and the organization's bills—and mentioned various moves to save money, from postponing conferences and meetings to scaling back services and travel.

"Member States have paid only 70 percent of the total amount needed for our regular budget operations in 2019," Guterres wrote in part. "This translates into a cash shortage of $230 million at the end of September."
