I liked this article, which comes from a lawyer who was hired by Donald Trump to work with him on a real estate project, and describes the experience. It wasn't a good one. In fairness, he only worked on this one project, and it was in 1987, almost 30 years ago. So, this can't be taken as a definitive look at the Republican nominee for president. But it's certainly an inside look, and seemingly valid for the events.
What's notable about the piece, though, is not so much the specifics of what happened, but that the author, Thomas M. Wells, breaks it down into 20 lessons he learned from his time with Trump and how they pertain to his run for the president. For instance, how at any opportunity, Trump would not hesitate to lie. Or that the presidency is about addressing all the people in the country, and Trump almost exclusively talks about "I." And much more.
You can read the whole thing here.
