President Joe Biden is willing to work with Congress to think through what the US-Saudi Arabia relationship “ought to look like going forward,” one of his top aides said. 

Biden “has been very clear that this is a relationship that we need to continue to reevaluate, that we need to be willing to revisit,” National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said Tuesday in an interview with CNN.
