Trump economic adviser Kudlow to stay in hospital after heart attack


White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Sunday tore into Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for "double crossing" President Trump with critical comments about USA trade policy. Larry is one of the smartest, most endearing, funniest people I know.

"Doctors say Larry's recovery is going very well", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.

The economist and former television host will be back to work at the White House "soon", Sanders said.

The President had broken the news of the heart attack via his Twitter account just moments before his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"The called lasted 20 seconds".

Senate will not 'poke the bear' Trump by passing tariff measure: lawmaker
Before this week, Corker had failed to say whether he'd support President Trump in 2020. "I can't believe it", continued Corker. Corker dismissed those objections as he went on a tear against his Republican colleagues.


Kudlow, who is 70 years old, had just joined the Trump administration in March.

Kudlow has been at the center of the US President's trade feuds in recent months, joining US delegations in Beijing and Canada to address trade disputes.

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 news conference that followed the G-7 meeting in Canada. 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.

After working in President Ronald Reagan's administration, Kudlow moved to Wall Street and, though he never completed a master's program in economics and policy at Princeton University, served as chief economist at Bear Stearns. He has also worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of NY.
