Washington, Jun 3 (UNI): Chairman of White House Council of Economic Advisers Kevin Hassett will step down 'shortly,' US President Donald Trump tweeted.

"Kevin Hassett, who has done such a great job for me and the Administration, will be leaving shortly," Trump said on Sunday, adding that he will name Hassett's successor as soon as he returns from a trip to Europe.

The president in the tweet also thanked Hassett "for all he has done" and said he is a "true friend."

Hassett, a 57-year-old Republican from Massachusetts, sworn in on September 13, 2017 as the 29th chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers.
