Larry Kudlow, Trump Economic Adviser, Suffers Heart Attack

Larry Kudlow, the TV business commentator who recently joined the White House as President Trump’s chief economic adviser, suffered a heart attack, Trump tweeted on Monday.

“Our Great Larry Kudlow, who has been working so hard on trade and the economy, has just suffered a heart attack. He is now in Walter Reed Medical Center,” Trump tweeted from Singapore, just before he is scheduled to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a statement to reporters that Kudlow suffered what doctors said was a “very mild heart attack” and that he was in good condition.

The Washington Post’s Robert Costa wrote that Kudlow’s wife, Judy, told the paper that her husband was “doing fine. Doctors here are fabulous.”

Kudlow joined the administration in April, succeeding Gary Cohn as the director of the National Economic Council. He had a long career as a cable news commentator and CNBC host and, before that, an economist on Wall Street.

He has been a vocal defender of Trump’s pursuit of tariffs, even though Kudlow in the past has fallen on the side of free and unrestricted trade. On Sunday, in an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” he accused Canada’s prime minister, Justin Trudeau, of a “betrayal” for his criticisms of Trump at a press conference tied to the G-7 summit last weekend.
