Barack Obama is reelected as President of the United States
, defeating Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

During his second term, Obama promotes domestic policies related to gun control, and greater inclusiveness for the LGBT community, urging the Supreme Court to strike down part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act and state level same-sex marriage bans as unconstitutional

Obama orders a U.S. military intervention in Iraq in response to offensives in Iraq conducted by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), while continuing the process of ending U.S. combat operations in Afghanistan, and normalizing U.S. relations with Cuba.
