In the past President Obama has said that his views on the issue were “evolving.” His announcement comes on the heels of Vice President Joe Biden and Education Secretary Arne Duncan saying publicly they were in favor of gay marriage.
President Obama also said he was “disappointed” by Tuesday’s vote on the gay marriage in North Carolina, which he described as discriminatory against gays and lesbians, a spokesman told CNN.
North Carolina voted to implement a state constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, which was already prohibited in the state.
President Obama told Roberts that first lady Michelle Obama was involved in his decision.
