White House press secretary Robert Gibbs announced the trip Tuesday from the nuclear security summit, at which Obama had asked the more than 40 world leaders gathered to stand for a moment of silence earlier in the day.

Gibbs said Obama will travel to Krakow for the funeral "to express the depth of our condolences to an important and trusted ally, and our support for the Polish people, on behalf of the American people."
