Larry Kudlow has suffered a heart attack, Trump says

President Trump tweeted that Kudlow suffered a heart attack and is hospitalized at Walter Reed Medical Center.

President Donald Trump's chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow has suffered a heart attack. She said Kudlow was doing well and that doctors expect him to make a "full and speedy recovery". "He is now in Walter Reed Medical Center", Mr Trump wrote on Twitter, shortly ahead of a historic summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council, had joined Trump last week in Canada for what became a contentious meeting of the Group of Seven world leaders.

A 70-year-old former financier, Mr. Kudlow left Wall Street in 2001 to work for the conservative magazine National Review and later appeared in a string of political and economic current affairs shows on the MSNBC news channel.

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.

Kudlow, who is a wry and upbeat speaker, has adopted some of Trump's hard-line rhetoric while working inside the West Wing. On Sunday, Kudlow said on CNN's "State of the Union" that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "really kind of stabbed us in the back" after criticizing USA tariffs on imported steel and aluminum and Trump's positions on trade in a news conference following the summit. His recovery has always been a source of pride for him and his friends, contributing to his optimistic outlook.
