Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, shifted her stance on Donald Trump releasing his tax returns. The Republican presidential nominee has stated that his tax returns are under audit by the Internal Revenue Service.
Conway, before working alongside Trump, formerly called for the Republican to be transparent.
She spoke to ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday in an interview, stating, “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 told CNN that she didn’t want Trump to release taxes that were formerly in audit and taxes currently being audited.
Trump’s tax returns from 2002 to 2008 were under audit by the Internal Revenue Service. Those audits have come to an end, but Conway urges Trump not to release those tax returns either. Tax returns since 2009 to date are under audit.
Conway took a jab at the transparency of Hillary Clinton during her interview with ABC. The campaign manager called Clinton “joyless” and the “least transparent” candidate in the presidential political history.
All major presidential candidates since 1976 have released their tax returns except Donald Trump. Clinton released her taxes from 2007 to 2015.
Mike Pence, Trump’s running mate, states he will release his personal taxes before the general election.
