Both President-elect Trump and UN Secretary-General-designate António Guterres will begin their terms in January 2017, marking the first time in more than half a century that the U.S. and UN will have new leaders at the same time and signaling an opportunity for robust and dynamic U.S.-UN relations.

Donald Trump will take office at a time when the U.S. has a strong track record in UN relations. As a result of bipartisan leadership over the past eight years, the U.S. has fully paid its obligations to the UN. As the largest financial supporter, the U.S. remains integral to a strong UN, and the nation’s status as a permanent member of the Security Council and host of UN Headquarters reflects its influence and importance.
