Real estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump used the tumbling stock market to remind the Internet that he’s been talking about the dangers of the Chinese economy for months.

Trump’s tweet was in response to “Black Monday” which saw the Chinese stock market with its biggest drop since the beginning of the financial crisis.

In case you need to hear Trump’s verbal, “I told you so,” he published an Instagram video.
