Obama, Biden to Visit Dallas Tuesday
Vice President Joe Biden said on Sunday that President Barack Obama will visit Dallas, Texas, on Tuesday.
The Hill reports:
Obama will deliver remarks at an interfaith memorial service at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, the White House announced on Sunday afternoon.
He will also meet with the families of the police officers who were killed and those who were injured.
Vice President Biden will also attend, the White House said Sunday, as will President George W. Bush and his wife.
President Bush will also speak, the White House said.
A sniper killed five police officers Thursday night during a protest against recent police shootings of black men.
Obama condemned the sniper attack as a despicable act in a statement from the NATO summit in Poland.
“I believe I speak for every single American when I say we are horrified over these events, and we stand united with the people and the police department in Dallas,” Obama said. “Anyone involved in the senseless murders will be held fully accountable. Justice will be done.”
