Steve Bannon received a financial shock from a company tied to controversial Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui, Axios reported Tuesday, while Bannon returned to set up a defense against accused President Trump.

Axios obtained two contracts – each for $ 1 million a year – connect Bannon with Guo Media, a company associated with the billionaire, who has fled China and is seeking asylum in the United States.

Guo is reportedly a member of Mar-a-Lago and DailyMail.com has celebrated him New Year's earlier this year at the Florida President's resort.

A spokesperson for the Trump organization did not respond to a request to confirm Guo's membership.

The first contract will provide Bannon with $ 1 million for advisory services from August 2018.

The next $ 1 million contract, which was not signed, would start in August 2019, Axios reported.

Bannon did not respond to a request for comment from the publication.

Guo Media is owned by Saraca Media Group and Daniel Podhaskie, a Guo spokesperson, told Axios that Bannon was hired thanks to his & # 39; cross-border financial expertise & # 39; and was retained for & # 39; strategic advisory work on media investments, [mergers and acquisitions], joint ventures and cryptocurrencies. & # 39;

& # 39; Bannon's work in these areas was completed and he is not currently being preserved, & Podhaskie continued. & # 39; Guo is only the face of Guo Media and was asked by Saraca to act in this capacity, given Mr Guo's strong criticism of the Chinese Communist Party. & # 39;

China has filed a petition with the Trump government to get Guo back.

& # 39; His entire goal has been to bring down the [Chinese Communist Party] and liberate his countrymen in China, & # 39; said Podhaskie.

In addition to following the money, Bannon worked on a radio program and broadcasts it from Guo's home in New York City, according to reporting from the newspaper The Hill.

It is a separate project that delivers the most news.

Last week, Bannon created his own war room with a radio program and podcast, literally the & # 39; war room & # 39; mentioned.

Bannon, formerly Breitbart News, collaborated with former Breitbart-London editor Raheem Kassam and 2016 Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller for the project.
