President Obama spoke with NBC’s Lester Holt about his “biggest disappointment” during his presidency. He cited the numerous instances of gun violence in the country, like the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, where 20 six year old children were killed.

He called it his biggest disappointment because he was unable to pass a legislation to strictly control the use of guns, even when “9 out of 10 Americans agreed with him.”
