Barack Obama will cut short a trip to Europe and travel to Dallas next week in the wake of the deadly ambush in the city that left five police dead, the White House said Friday.

“The president has accepted an invitation from Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings to travel to Dallas early next week,” spokesman Josh Earnest said in a statement.

Obama was meeting with NATO allies in response to Great Britain's exit form the European Union.

After the terror attack in Brussels, Obama attended a baseball game in Havana with Cuban President Raul Castro, doing "The Wave" and enjoying the tropical weather. He then flew to Argentina where he proceeded to 'Tango' dance with the foreign leaders.
