Trump Aide Larry Kudlow Hospitalized After Heart Attack

Trump Larry Kudlow suffered heart attack

President Trump tweeted that his economic advisor Larry Kudlow had suffered a heart attack just minutes before the president met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. "He is now in Walter Reed Medical Center", Trump wrote on Twitter, shortly ahead of a historic summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Trump's choice of Kudlow to be his top economic aide elevated the influence of a longtime fixture on the business news network CNBC.

"He's doing fine. The doctors here are fabulous", Kudlow said, saying she would have preferred not to comment but wanted to clarify his health status to the public.

Mr. Kudlow's condition was not immediately clear. The meeting was shadowed by the Trump administration's escalation of rhetoric on trade and tariffs and splintered shortly after the president left Quebec and tweeted he was pulling back his approval of a joint statement by the group.

But the diplomatic fireworks ended up even more spectacular than anticipated. "Instead of fighting among ourselves". For context, Trump slapped hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum products on his G7 allies before the summit.

During internal White House deliberations this spring, Mr. Kudlow argued in favour of cutting a quick deal with Canada and Mexico to resolve NAFTA renegotiations, said sources with knowledge of the confidential talks.

Kudlow, who is a wry and upbeat speaker, has adopted some of Trump's hard-line rhetoric while working inside the West Wing.

For five years before his White House appointment in March, Kudlow hosted a show on CNBC on business and politics, and he's worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of NY.
