A 45-year-old woman, Karena Virginia on Thursday, October 19, accused US Presidential candidate, Donald Trump of groping her and making distasteful sexual remarks.

This brings the number of women who have so far accused Trump of 'sexual assault' to 10 - he strongly denied all the allegations.

Virginia, a New York-area yoga instructor, said at a news conference that the Republican nominee had made an unwanted sexual advance at her at the 1998 US Open tennis tournament.

She said Trump pointed at her to other men and said "hey, look at this one. We haven’t seen this one before. Look at those legs’ as if I was an object rather than a person."

Virginia, who was 27 at the time, said that Trump grabbed her by the arm and touched her breast.

"Don’t you know who I am, don’t you know who I am?’ he said," according to Virginia’s statement.

"I felt intimidated and I felt powerless,” she said, adding that she "felt ashamed" for wearing a short dress and high heels.

"That feeling of shame stayed with me for a while," she said.

Virginia's lawyer Gloria Allred, a high-profile discrimination lawyer, said that her client "is not considering a lawsuit at this time."

However, the Trump campaign has described the latest accusation as a "coordinated, publicity seeking attack".

"Discredited political operative Gloria Allred, in another coordinated, publicity seeking attack with the Clinton campaign, will stop at nothing to smear Mr Trump,” Jessica Ditto, the Republican’s campaign deputy communications director, said in a statement.

"Give me a break. Voters are tired of these circus-like antics and reject these fictional stories and the clear efforts to benefit Hillary Clinton."

On October 7. The Washington Post released a 2005 video recording that caught Trump boasting in lewd terms about how he could get away with groping women without their consent because he was a celebrity.

After this aired, nine women came forward to accuse Trump of unwanted sexual advances.
