A new social media network led by Donald Trump adviser Jason Miller is backed by a fugitive Chinese billionaire who once invited Steve Bannon to live on his yacht.

On Thursday, Miller announced the launch of "Gettr," a new social media app aimed at conservatives that promises to be "cancel-free." Trump fans wary of social media censorship on more prominent platforms like Twitter and Facebook started to sign up for the platform after Politico reported on the existence of the new site.

What's not made clear to Gettr's new users, though, is that the site received initial funding from a foundation owned by Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui and his family. In an interview with The Daily Beast on Thursday, Miller said Guo's "family foundation" provided Gettr with early funding.
