Donald Trump took to Twitter Wednesday to blast a lawyer who alleged during a CNN interview that the real estate magnate had a “meltdown” over her breast pump during a 2011 deposition.

Attorney Elizabeth Beck said Mr. Trump stormed out of the room when she pulled out a breast pump and requested a break to use it for her 3-month old daughter.

“He had an absolute meltdown when I said I needed the break, and it was for breast-pumping purposes,” she recalled. ”[Mr. Trump] 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. And we were not able to conclude his deposition that day.”

Mr. Trump’s lawyer, Alan Garten, said his client’s anger had nothing to do with Ms. Beck’s request.

“It was solely the fact that she was appearing to do it in the middle of a deposition,” Mr. Garten told The New York Times. “In my 20 years of legal practice, I’ve never seen more bizarre behavior at a deposition. That is what led to his remark.”

On Wednesday, the Republican presidential candidate took to Twitter to boast about how he “beat” Ms. Beck during their legal row.

“[CNN] did not say that lawyer Beck lost the case and I got legal fees. Also, she wanted to breast pump in front of me at dep,” Mr. Trump tweeted.

“Lawyer Elizabeth Beck was easy for me to beat. Ask her clients if they are happy with her results against me. Got total win and legal fees,” he added. “Lawyer Elizabeth Beck did a terrible job against me, she lost (I even got legal fees). I loved beating her, she was easy.

“Why is somebody (Beck) I beat so soundly all of a sudden an expert on Donald Trump (all over television). She knows nothing about me,” Mr. Trump wrote.

“So many people who know nothing about me are commenting all over T.V. and the media as though they have great D.J.T. insight. Know NOTHING!” he said.
