Donald Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway says she no longer wants the candidate to release his tax returns due to his ongoing audit.

"So now that I'm on the inside, I know something I didn't know then. He's under audit. He's said completely, when the audit is completed, he will release," she said on CNN's "State of the Union," according to CBS News.

"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 in an interview Sunday morning, as quoted by The Washington Post. "I also know as a pollster that what concerns people most about quote 'taxes' is their own tax liability, and so we appreciate people being able to see Hillary Clinton's plan and Donald Trump's plan and figure out who will really get the middle-class tax relief."

Conway quickly changed her mind after being appointed campaign manager. In April, she called for Trump to release his tax returns during an appearance on CNN, Media Matters reported, saying "Donald Trump's tax returns aren't [transparent], I would like to see those be transparent."

But now that's she's on the inside of Trump's campaign, Conway says she's confused by why his tax returns are considered an important issue.

"This entire tax return debate is somewhat confounding to me, in the following sense: I don't think that it creates one job, gets one more individual who does not have health insurance covered by health insurance, particularly under the disaster that has been Obamacare with these private insurers pulling out our exchanges now and reporting billions of dollars of losses," Conway said. "If we want transparency, if we want specifics, the most relevant thing that people can look at is what is his plan for their tax bill."
