Donald Trump's new campaign manager said Sunday that the GOP nominee will not release his income tax returns to the public until an Internal Revenue Service audit is complete. It was a reversal for Kellyanne Conway, who was named Trump's campaign manager on Wednesday. Earlier this year, the Republican pollster and strategist had urged Trump to release his tax returns. "I've learned since being on the inside that this audit is a serious matter and that he has said that when the audit is complete, he will release his tax returns," Conway said Sunday on ABC's "This Week." No law prevents Trump from releasing his returns during an audit, which could take years.
