During the Republican primary, Manning backed Jeb Bush. He has donated to other Republicans in the past.

He hung out with Trump's son Donald Jr. last summer.

Trump is also good friends with Manning's NFL archrival, Tom Brady. The Patriots quarterback told WEEI he and Trump had known each other for 16 years, but also wondered why that friendship was "such a big deal."
