Donald Trump is responding to claims he once called a female lawyer "disgusting."

In a recent interview with CNN, attorney Elizabeth Beck detailed a 2011 incident in which Trump had an "absolute meltdown" when she requested a break from a deposition to pump breast milk.

"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 told CNN this week.

Trump rushed to Twitter this morning to respond to Beck's claims; however, the 69-year-old presidential hopeful does not deny his alleged "meltdown."

".@CNN & @CNNPolitics 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," the controversy-prone star tweeted Wednesday followed by, "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."

".CNN & @CNNPolitics Lawyer Elizabeth Beck did a terrible job against me, she lost (I even got legal fees). I loved beating her,she was easy," Trump continued his tirade. "@CNN 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."


Beck also told CNN regarding Trump's temper, "What kind of a leader of the United States would that be? Is he going to behave that way when he's negotiating treaties with China or Russia?"
