With the revelation of the report, the Biden administration was immediately pressured to impose some form of travel sanctions on the Crown Prince.

President Joe Biden referred to Saudi Arabia as a "pariah" state "with no redeeming value" in 2020.

Administration officials say that the president will not impose a travel sanction on the Crown Prince due to the close relationship between the countries.
