Obama to speak Tuesday at Dallas memorial service

Alton Sterling was tackled to the ground and shot six times by police outside of a convenience store in Baton Rouge Lousiana

U.S. President Barack Obama waves next to Spain's King Felipe as he arrives at the Torrejon military air base in Madrid, Spain Saturday, July 9, 2016.

He said violence against police by anyone concerned about fairness in the criminal justice system does "a disservice to the cause".

While Obama said it was unfair to characterize an entire movement by a few dissonant voices, he said inflammatory words could hinder legitimate efforts to reform the justice system.

A respectful debate, Obama said, is "what's going to ultimately help make the job of being a cop a lot safer".

The president dropped in on a meeting with law enforcement officials at the White House Monday hosted by Vice President Joseph R. Biden. Mr.

Acting Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said during a news conference with Mr. Obama that his aim was to form a government as quickly as possible to be able to ensure Spain's economy continues to expand robustly and that job creation picks up the pace.

"It is in the interest of police officers that their communities trust them", Obama said.

He traveled to Spain after attending a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Warsaw, Poland.

Obama said in Madrid after meeting with Spain's acting prime minister that one of the great things about America is that individuals and groups can protest and speak truth to power. Tourists and curiosity seekers lined some streets in hopes of catching a glimpse of him, and local TV aired wall-to-wall coverage of his movements.

Obama is cutting his trip to Europe short by one day and will return Sunday to Washington in order to travel to Dallas in the coming days at the invitation of Mayor Mike Rawlings. "We've had a hard week in the United States".

Obama said that the United States and Spain share basic values and are "working together" at Rota because they want the people of the world to be able to live with security and dignity. The economy is a top concern of the Spanish public, with almost 5 million people out of work and the unemployment rate at about 20 percent. It was the country's second round of inconclusive balloting in the past year.

The king thanked Obama for visiting under the circumstances.

King Felipe also gave the president a gift for visiting: Per the Royal Palace, the King gave him an English edition of Don Quixote, edited by Penguin and translated by John Rutherford, with leather covers stamped with a USA seal and the Royal House seal.

"It's a challenging time for all of our countries", Mr. Obama said, pointing to terrorist attacks in the U.S., Europe and Turkey as well as the arrival of many migrants from war zones.

Obama went on to mention that American forces have been stationed in Spain for more than 60 years and today there are more than 3,000 service members stationed in Rota. Obama's wife, Michelle, visited Spain in late June with their daughters, Malia and Sasha, to promote her global girls' education initiative.
