      A star of adult films has gone public on 60 Minutes with her claim that she had sex with Donald Trump in 2006 and was threatened to keep quiet about it.

      Stormy Daniels, a.k.a. Stephanie Clifford, told broadcaster Anderson Cooper that she only had one sexual encounter with Trump, something Trump has denied.

      She was 27 and Trump was 60 at the time, so Cooper asked if she was physically attracted to Trump.

      "No," Clifford replied.

      "Not at all?" Cooper asked.


      She also claimed that Trump told her that she reminded him of his daughter.

      Clifford insisted that she wasn't a victim and the sex was consensual.

      She also claimed that he didn't use a condom.

      It came after he allegedly invited her into a hotel room where they were supposed to have dinner.

      In 2011 she reached an agreement to sell her story to In Touch magazine for $15,000, but the publication backed down after Trump's lawyer threatened to file a lawsuit.

      Clifford claimed that she was later threatened to keep quiet about her encounter with Trump.

      It occurred when she was in a parking lot in Las Vegas on her way to a fitness class. A man walked up to her car as she was dealing with the baby seat and told her to leave Trump alone.

      Then, she said, the man looked at her infant daughter and said "it'd be a shame if something happened to her mom."

      Even though she took it as a direct threat, Clifford never went to the police.

      Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, has said that Daniels is in violation of a nondisclosure agreement by speaking publicly.

      Cohen has claimed he paid Daniels $130,000 in 2016 out of his own funds.

      Daniels, on the other hand, has said that she wants to return the money to free her up to speak publicly.

      Others have questioned whether unreported Cohen's payment was a donation-in-kind to the Trump presidential campaign because it had the effect of keeping this story out of the news before the election, thereby helping Trump's chance of winning.
