“I told you so.”
No one enjoys hearing those four words, and for that reason alone, most people avoid using them — unless your name is Jeb Bush.

Although the former Florida governor had some kind words for President Trump, he also found reason for criticism.
“When I ran for office, I said he is a chaos candidate and would be a chaos president,” Bush said Friday at the annual SALT hedge fund conference in Las Vegas, according to CNN.
“Unfortunately, so far chaos organizes the presidency right now,” Bush, who ran against Trump in the Republican primary added.
But the brother and son of two previous presidents also found reason to applaud Trump.
”The president has made some really good appointments, he’s acted decisively in some areas I think were important, particularly on the regularly side,” he said, before adding, “He hasn’t shifted to being president the way people are used to, and I think that’s the problem.”
Bush also advised the commander-in-chief to “stop tweeting,” claiming that it offers “our enemies all sorts of nuances and insights” into the president’s thinking.
He claimed that Trump is facing a problem that famously besieged the Richard Nixon presidency — leaks to the press from people within the White House.
“I’ve never seen a White House as leaky as this one,” Bush said. “People should be fired if they’re disloyal to the president of the United States and leaking.”
Nixon dedicated a unit that became known as “the plumbers” to take care of the leaks.
Without surprise, Trump supporters stuck by their president.

Bush wouldn’t predict the possibility of a Republican challenger in 2020.
“It’s hard to tell,” he said. “It’s too early.”
