Given Mohammed bin Salman current apparent attitude towards the US
none of those can reasonably be considered "anything in support ".
Realisticaly the only things likely to have any impact would be
sactions (non viable due to wider issues with global oil suppliers) or
rather a lot of violence (which has some very obvious downsides). The
upshot is that US goverment has very little ability to do anything
(even if it wanted to) and the foundation not at all.
