Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said Monday that he would not attend Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress next month.

Multiple reporters who attended a speech given by Sanders, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, at a Brookings Institution event shared his comments.

Three House Democrats have said they also won’t attend Netanyahu’s speech on Iran, which House Speaker John Boehner invited him to make without consulting the White House, and dozens of others are reportedly considering a boycott.
