METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

The head of Louisiana's Republican party confirmed that Congressman Charles Boustany, R-LA, may land a job as the Trump administration's chief U.S. trade negotiator.

The Lafayette native currently serves on the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee and is in sync with Trump's philosophy that the U.S. should be exporting U.S. oil and gas to help grow the  economy.

"There's a number of good quality Louisianians in the running for a variety of positions. They are looking at Congressman Boustany. He is well known and has a great reputation in Washington," said state GOP Chairman Roger Villere.

"Politico" magazine reports that Boustany is one of three people under consideration for the post.
