    Real estate magnate says elderly woman suing him concocted bait-and-switch story to get a non-refundable deposit back. Kim Vatis reports.

    Donald Trump got his chance this week to speak to jurors at a civil trial in Chicago and now the 87-year-old woman who sued him gets her turn.

    Jacqueline Goldberg claims the "Apprentice" star promised her a profit-sharing plan if she bought condos at the Trump International Hotel & Tower and then withdrew the offer in an alleged bait-and-switch.

    She's scheduled to testify Friday.

    Trump sharply criticized Goldberg on the stand and to reporters after testifying Wednesday.

    [CHI] Donald Trump Testifies at Chicago Trial
    A sometimes prickly, sometimes boastful Donald Trump testified Tuesday at a civil trial where the developer-turned-TV personality is accused of using false promises to entice an 87-year-old investor into buying condos at his namesake Chicago skyscraper

    He said Goldberg is trying to "rip" him off. He also said she's trying to curry sympathy by highlighting she's nearly 90. He claimed, "nobody played the age card better than her."

    Goldberg wants her $500,000 deposit back and the profit she says she would have made had Trump stuck to his offer.
