URBANDALE, Iowa (AP) — Donald Trump’s advice for high school students in suburban Des Moines, Iowa, is uncharacteristically wholesome: Avoid alcohol and drugs as well as cigarettes.

The billionaire businessman and Republican presidential candidate is also encouraging the teens to follow their hearts and do something they love, even if it means making less money.

Trump offered those views Saturday night in the parking lot of Urbandale High School as he addressed a group of students ahead of their fall homecoming dance. A social media campaign brought him to the celebration and hundreds of students, parents and others turned out.

It was a rare moment of humility for the often-caustic billionaire, who is better known for firing competitors on his reality TV show and lobbing insults at his opponents in the GOP field.
