Trump’s presidential campaign is apparently planning to open a Beijing-based fundraising center, according to a report by Axios.
The Washington Post reported the campaign was in discussions to open an office in Beijing’s Tianjin district and to have another office in the eastern city of Guangzhou, which is home to the Chinese capital.
The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
A Trump spokeswoman did not respond to CNNMoney’s request for clarification about the new fundraising office.
In August, the Trump campaign began raising money in mainland China, where it’s already a well-established fundraising network, according the Post.
In China, the campaign raised $7.6 million last month, more than double what it raised in August 2015.
CNNMoney reported in May that Trump’s China-based campaign was working to establish a headquarters and a logistics network to raise $2.5 million in the country by November.
China’s President Xi Jinping has said he wants to be a leader in the Asia-Pacific region and to build the economy for the 21st century.
Trump has criticized Beijing’s trade policies and has vowed to use the Trump administration’s influence over China to push for free trade and open markets.
