An 87-year-old grandmother took on billionaire Donald Trump. And she lost.

A federal jury in Chicago on Thursday sided with the real estate mogul-turned-TV showman in a weeklong civil trial focused on Jacqueline Goldberg's claim that Trump cheated her in a condo bait-and-switch scheme.

Goldberg, of Evanston, accused Trump of wooing her into buying two condos in the glitzy Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago at $1 million apiece in the mid-2000s by promising to share the building's profits with her — then reneging after she committed to buying.

Goldberg had sought various damages totaling about $6 million.
