All In The Family As Richard Nixon’s Grandson To Be Ambassador To China

November 27, 2016

I found this interesting to read today.

Over the Thanksgiving weekend Christopher Nixon Cox, the grandson of Richard Nixon, had time with Donald Trump in Florida.  Cox is being heavily promoted to be the next ambassador to China.

It was the work of President Richard Nixon that opened China’s diplomatic doors.   And it seems now the circle comes back home with the forthcoming news of Cox’s assignment.

The problem I have with Cox is his lack of state department background.  I have long argued against the idea of political supporters being made an ambassador.  It not only cheapens the job but gives real workers at state the willies.  While there is a charming aspect to his grandfather being central to a major foreign policy initiative, and now the grandson having the high post it also needs to be said that Cox does not have a resume to support undertaking such a job.
