Donald Trump Delivers Mouthful on Breast-Pumping Lawyer: She’s a ‘Vicious, Horrible Person’

”She made it up,“ GOP candidate tells CNN’s Dana Bash of attorney Elizabeth Beck’s account of a 2011 deposition

Donald Trump hurled more insults at the female lawyer whom he called “disgusting” several years ago for requesting a break to pump breast milk in the middle of a deposition, calling her a “vicious, horrible person.”

In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash on Wednesday, the GOP presidential frontrunner insisted that the attorney, Elizabeth Beck, is simply retaliating against him because she lost the case.

“She wanted to breast pump in front of me and I may have said that’s disgusting, I may have said something else. I thought it was terrible,” Trump said. “She’s a vicious, horrible person.”

Earlier on Wednesday, Beck told CNN’s “New Day” that Trump had “an absolute meltdown” during their 2011 encounter.

“He got up, his face got red, he shook his finger at me and he screamed, ‘You’re disgusting, you’re disgusting,’ and he ran out of there,” Beck said.

Trump repudiated her account of the story.

“She made it up. She made it up,” he said. “She’s saying, ‘Oh, he was so violent and he was so, so wild and she was afraid.’ She was afraid of nobody. She’s a tough killer in Miami — everyone knows she’s a killer. They all hate her.”

Bash then asked Trump how the incident reflects on him as president and how he would react if, say, challenged by a world leader like Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump said: “Believe me, I’d do very well with him. I get along with people.”

The business mogul and former reality TV star also fleshed out his views on immigration, saying he would deport all undocumented immigrants and then allow the “good ones” to enter the country through an “expedited process” and live in the U.S. legally, though not as citizens.

Asked whether he would deport undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, Trump said he was unsure. “It’s a tough situation,” he said. “It depends.”
