President Donald Trump on Tuesday refused to answer whether he would pardon his former campaign chief Paul Manafort.


After a White House announcement about tax reform, a reporter tried to ask the president if he planned to pardon Manafort. Trump appeared to hear the question and paused for a moment, but did not answer it.

"Thank you, everybody," Trump said.

Manafort was indicted Monday as part of Robert Mueller's federal investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election.
