According to Drago, Manning was with Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.). President Donald Trump was returning from Trump National Golf Club in Potomac Falls, Virginia:
CNN's Allie Malloy posted photos of Manning and Corker at the White House, as well as Trump National:
The Daily Beast's Kelly Weill reported in January that Manning had been active with regard to political donations. In addition to giving money to George W. Bush's 2004 re-election campaign, he supported Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential elections. Manning also donated to Corker's campaigns in 2006 and 2009.
While Manning supported the presidential bid of Jeb Bush, he has since shifted his support to Trump. Politico's Jake Sherman, Anna Palmer and Daniel Lippman reported the 14-time Pro Bowler was slated to speak at a January GOP retreat, with Trump and Vice President Mike Pence among the other speakers.
During media day for Super Bowl 50 in February 2016, Manning told reporters he had golfed with Trump before.
"I played a round of golf with him in Tahoe," Manning said, per the Houston Chronicle's Al Saracevic. "I didn't play real well, so I was kind of focused on trying to find my ball. ... The times I've been around him, he's been extremely nice to me."
Amid rumors he had aspirations of his own political career, Manning said in March he doesn't plan on running for elected office.
