Retiring Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif. — an ardent advocate of President Donald Trump's hard-line trade policies — will get the nod to head the U.S. Trade and Development Agency.

The White House confirmed Wednesday that Issa will be named to the currently vacant position, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The independent agency helps companies create jobs domestically through the export of U.S. goods and services for development projects in emerging economies, the Journal noted.

The appointment comes as Trump pushes to renegotiate tougher trade deals with some of America's biggest trade partners, the Journal reported.

Issa, one of the wealthiest members of Congress, previously served as CEO of Directed Electronics, an automobile security device business that he co-founded, The Hill noted.
