Christopher Nixon Cox, the grandson of the late U.S. President Richard Nixon, is likely to join the Trump administration as an economic staffer focused on trade with China, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Cox lives in New York and is a managing partner and co-founder of OC Global Partners LLC. He would likely take over the China portfolio at the National Economic Council, the people said. His potential hire comes amid an escalating trade war between the world’s two biggest economies.
