Yoga instructor accuses Donald Trump of sexual misconduct

That didn't take long.

A day after the final presidential debate of the 2016 campaign, a yoga instructor and lifestyle coach appeared at a news conference to accuse Donald Trump of sexual misconduct.

Fighting back tears, 45-year-old Karena Virginia became the 10th woman to accuse the Republican presidential candidate of inappropriate behavior.

She alleged that in 1998, Trump walked up to her at the U.S. Open tennis tournament, grabbed her arm, and then touched her breast, according to NBC News.

"I was in shock. I flinched. 'Don't you know who I am? Don't you know who I am?' That's what he said to me," she told reporters at a New York news conference Thursday that was announced by women's rights attorney Gloria Allred during Trump's debate with Hillary Clinton.

Allred said Virginia is "not considering a lawsuit at this time," but wanted to speak out in response to Trump's "ludicrous" denial of other allegations against him, according to NBC News.

Trump's campaign responded Thursday by lashing out at Allred.

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

Trump on Wednesday night denied sexual misconduct claims by nine other women who have accused him recently, saying their allegations "have been largely debunked."

"I don't know these people," Trump said during the debate. "These stories are totally false."
