Trump calls lawyer ‘disgusting’ for breastfeeding child in court case
Trump's attorney Allen Garten, who was present during the incident, did not deny that Trump called the lawyer disgusting
Republican Presidential front-runner Donald Trump has described a lawyer as “disgusting” for stopping to breastfeed her child during a court case, according to documents uncovered by the New York Times.
“You’re disgusting,” Trump reportedly told lawyer Elizabeth Beck before storming out of the courtroom.
In response, Beck claimed that: “Donald Trump ran out of there because idea of the breast pumping so distressed him he really couldn’t handle it.”
Beck, who was questioning Trump in a 2011 lawsuit over a failed Florida real estate project, had asked for a break to breastfeed her infant which was objected by Trump and his lawyers.
Trump's attorney Allen Garten, who was present during the incident, did not deny that Trump called the lawyer “disgusting.”
Garten added that Trump’s reaction was “solely the fact that she was appearing to do it in the middle of a deposition.”
The breastfeeding incident is among a series of lawsuits involving Trump since 2007.
