The president's top economic adviser has suffered a heart attack, President Trump said. President Trump tweeted that Kudlow suffered a heart attack and is hospitalized at Walter Reed Medical Center.

Kudlow's condition wasn't immediately known. "He is now in Walter Reed Medical Center".

Kudlow was appointed head of the National Economic Council in April.

Washington Post reporter Robert Costa received a statement from Kudlow's wife Judy Kudlow. He replaced Gary Cohn, who resigned after losing his battle against imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. As recently as Sunday, he had appeared on TV defending the president's attacks on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, saying that Trudeau had committed a "betrayal".

"He was polarizing. He really kind of stabbed us in the back, he did a great disservice to the whole G-7, he betrayed them".

Mr Kudlow is the White House's economic adviser - and in recent days, made remarks that helped ratchet up tensions following the G7 summit.

There was no additional information from the White House or second source, rather it was only Trump's twitter account. He was a CNBC contributor before returning to the White House this year.

At the White House, however, he was one of the most visible and vocal of advisers arguing that the president was simply trying to fix a broken global trade system in which the United States was not being treated fairly.
