New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft attended Tuesday's speech by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Congress in Washington, D.C.

Netanyahu spoke about ongoing negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program. 

Kraft is a longtime supporter of Israel and has donated millions of dollars to various Israeli causes, including the Israel Football League

The speech was controversial because it was arranged with Speaker of the House John Boehner without first consulting the White House. Around 50 Democrats boycotted the speech, according to NBC News

Netanyahu is currently running for re-election. Israeli elections are set to take place this month.
