President Donald Trump said the White House's top economist is leaving soon.
In a tweet Sunday night, Trump said the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, Kevin Hassett, will be departing "shortly" and praised him as having "done such a great job for me and the Administration."
Trump said he will name what he calls a "very talented replacement" as soon as he returns to the U.S. from his trip to Europe.
