U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres marks his first 100 days in office Monday, facing a long list of worsening conflicts worldwide and still many unanswered questions about where U.S. foreign policy is headed.The United States is the biggest contributor to the United Nations, paying 22 percent of the $5.4 billion core budget and 28.5 percent of the $7.9 billion peacekeeping budget.One hiccup, however, came when the White House blocked Guterres' choice of Palestinian Salam Fayyed to be U.N. peace envoy for Libya, a setback that highlighted how the U.N. chief's agenda could be hijacked by the United States.Guterres has yet to meet Trump or U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in order to discuss how they see the way forward.
