Adult film actress Stormy Daniels told CBS's "60 Minutes" that she signed a non-disclosure agreement because she feared for her well-being.

Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, said the confrontation was still on her mind five years later, when Trump received the Republican nomination for president in 2016, and was elected. Trump, through spokespeople, denies an affair with Daniels.
