"Our Great Larry Kudlow, who has been working so hard on trade and the economy, has just suffered a heart attack", President Trump wrote.

Kudlow has been taken to Walter Reed Medical Center, the president said. The president tweeted that Kudlow is now at Walter Reed Medical Center.

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

Kudlow joined Trump's administration as the president's top economic adviser in March, replacing Gary Cohn.

Prior to hosting a show on CNBC, Kudlow worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of NY and in President Ronald Reagan's administration.

Kudlow said the USA had spent the summit negotiating in "good faith" with Trudeau and the other assembled leaders, and that the U.S. had planned to sign the communique until Trudeau's news conference, which Kudlow called a "sophomoric play".

During internal White House deliberations this spring, Mr. Kudlow argued in favour of cutting a quick deal with Canada and Mexico to resolve NAFTA renegotiations, said sources with knowledge of the confidential talks.

Kudlow appeared Sunday on CNN to back up Trump's complaint that he had been blindsided by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's criticism of his tariff threats at a summit-ending news conference.

He has acknowledged ups and downs in his life, having been addicted to drugs and alcohol before getting sober more than 20 years ago.

When he was a CNBC contributor before taking the White House job, Kudlow argued the metals tariffs Trump had announced would harm consumers.
