YellowPagesGoesGreen.org Presents Unique Look at Donald Trump on Eve of First Presidential Debate
In this blog post, Yellow Pages Goes Green's CEO, Michael Keegan, recounts an encounter his father had many years prior with – at the time – recent Wharton School of Finance and Commerce at the University of Pennsylvania graduate Donald Trump, and notes how a stern and potentially embarrassing browbeating by Donald's own father may have played a key role in shaping the viewpoints of the man who would one day go on to be one of the most prolific real estate dealers in United Stated history, in addition to a very successful reality television star.

"Early humility has taught him that, while an intelligent and savvy businessman, he nonetheless might not have all the answers, and like any great leader, he hedges his bets by leaning on professionals to help him make his important choices to make sure he makes the right ones. It's a strategy that has served him well and has brought him down the path to the White House."
