Statement by Ambassador Nikki Haley, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, on President Trump’s 2018 Budget Blueprint

New York City
March 16, 2017



“I have been working closely with the Secretary-General and members of the Security Council to reform the peacekeeping process and UN management‎. This was a promise made to the American people and a goal to restore trust and value at the UN. In many areas, the UN spends more money than it should, and in many ways it places a much larger financial burden on the United States than on other countries. I look forward to working with Members of Congress to craft a budget that advances U.S. interests at the UN, and I look forward to working with my UN colleagues to make the organization more effective and efficient.”
