Chief White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow was rushed to a Washington hospital after suffering a heart attack, President Trump said Monday night.

Trump announced Kudlow's heart attack in a tweet sent minutes before he met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

The economic adviser appeared on CNN's State of The Union Sunday Morning.

As a commentator, Kudlow had strongly backed Trump's moves to cut taxes and reduce business regulations but was openly critical toward the president's tariffs moves.

It was not immediately known when Kudlow suffered the heart attack or what his condition was.

After Mr. Trudeau reiterated at the G7 on Saturday that Canada would impose retaliatory tariffs in response to Mr. Trump's metal levies - and the President accused Mr. Trudeau of being "weak and dishonest" - Mr. Kudlow disparaged the Prime Minister in surprisingly personal terms.

Experts say the Trudeau spat and the likelihood of tariffs from the European Union and Canada will result in a trade war. Trump has already kick-started an investigation into auto imports , which could result in tariffs on foreign vehicles.

The summit was seen as an opportunity to overcome disagreements on new tariffs imposed by the U.S. on imports to the country. Well, what he said over the weekend is exactly what he's been saying since the USA -imposed tariffs on aluminum and steel.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow speaks during a briefing at the White House in Washington last week.

Kudlow has been married to his third wife, Judy Pond, since 1986.

But since joining the Trump administration, he has faithfully executed his boss's agenda - arguing for instance that the European Union must make "concessions" if it wishes to be exempt from tariffs, and signaling the USA is prepared to walk away from two-decade-old North American Free Trade Agreement.

Kudlow, a wry and upbeat speaker, has also adopted some of Trump's hard-line rhetoric while working inside the West Wing.

Kudlow served in the Reagan administration and was a highflying Wall Street executive in the 1990s before undergoing treatment for drug and alcohol problems. His recovery has always been a source of pride for him and his friends, contributing to his optimistic outlook.
