Now that she's Donald Trump's campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway says she no longer believes Trump needs to release his tax returns.

During the GOP presidential primaries, Conway headed a super political action committee that supported one of Trump's rivals, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Conway told an interviewer back then that she believed Trump should be more transparent and release his returns.

Trump claims he can't do so because he's being audited.

Conway tells ABC's "This Week" that now that she's on the inside, she realizes "that this audit is a serious matter, and he has said when the audit is complete he will release his tax returns."

Conway also says that as a pollster, she knows what voters really care about is their own tax rates, and she argues Trump offers a better plan on that than Democrat Hillary Clinton.
