Former President Obama appeared to take a jab at President Trump and critiqued US gun laws during a speech in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Thursday.
Obama also praised his own administration for achieving “great power without corruption.”
“Nobody was jailed. We made mistakes. We were not perfect. But we maintained integrity and we were able to show that it is possible to achieve great power without corruption,” Obama told the crowd during his appearance at the VTEX Day conference.
The comment comes after the end of special counsel Robert Mueller’s 22-month investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, which ended with more than two dozen Russians and six Trump associates charged.
Mueller also indicted a dozen Russian intelligence officers for allegedly hacking the Democratic National Committee and U.S. election infrastructure.
Obama also criticized the United States’s gun laws, saying they “don’t make much sense.”
“The most difficult day that I’ve had was the day that there was a shooting in a school where 20 small children were shot,” Obama said.
“Some of you may be aware, our gun laws in the United States don’t make much sense. Anybody can buy any weapon, any time without much, if any, regulation,” he said. “They buy it over the internet. They can buy machine guns.”
Obama made the comments referring to the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School that left 26 children and educators dead during his first term.
