Top White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow, a staunch defender of President Donald Trump’s tough stance on global trade, was in good condition in a Washington-area hospital after suffering a heart attack, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on Tuesday.

Trump announced Kudlow’s heart attack in a tweet sent minutes before he met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

“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 said.

Later, Sanders, who was traveling with the president, told reporters that Kudlow was “in good condition” and “doing well.”

A longtime television commentator, Kudlow, 70, was hired by Trump in March to replace Gary Cohn as director of the National Economic Council.

Kudlow joined the president at the Group of Seven summit in Quebec on Friday and Saturday. He did several media interviews on Sunday to vigorously defend Trump after the president’s trade spat with summit host Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

One Response to Larry Kudlow hospitalized – heart attack

  1. Lucille says:

    From the beginning, Kudlow seemed to have no energy. A heart attack is not a surprise. If you have the least bit of a problem with the heart, continuous stress can put you over the edge into a major incident.

    Re Reuters, it’s just another leftie apologist. Note: “…the president’s trade spat…” and Reuters happily making out that the President is participating in a childish spat when what discerning people believe he’s doing is providing a successful future for the American economy and American workers.
