The Trump administration will not issue executive orders calling for a review of international treaties and US funding of the United Nations and other international bodies "at this time," a senior US administration official said on Friday.

The Trump administration was preparing executive orders that would review US funding of the United Nations and other international organizations and certain forms of multilateral treaties, the New York Times reported on Wednesday."We remain committed to supporting the useful and necessary work performed by such organizations and alliances, and look forward to continuing that support," the official told Reuters.

"While no executive orders on these subjects are expected at this time, this president and his administration intend to be watchful stewards of the American people's interests and of the American taxpayer's dollars," the official added.
