President Trump on Tuesday ignored a question from reporters about whether he would pardon his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

"Are you going to pardon Manafort?" a reporter asked Trump ahead of his meeting with business and industry groups supporting the Republican tax-cut plan.

“Thank you, thank you, everybody,” Trump responded, ignoring the question.

Manafort pleaded not guilty Monday to all charges brought against him by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Manafort has been released on a $10 million bond as he faces 151 to 181 months in prison for allegedly evading taxes on profits made by representing Ukrainian clients and failing to register as a foreign agent.
