Trump economic adviser Larry Kudlow suffers heart attack, president says

White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow has been hospitalized after suffering a heart attack on Monday, according to a tweet from President Donald Trump.

Trump tweeted just minutes before his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that Kudlow is being treated at Walter Reed Medical Center.

In the 1980s, he served as White House budget director under President Ronald Reagan and is still a champion of that era's conservative, supply-side economics, which calls for cutting taxes to boost growth - an ideology the Trump administration has emphatically embraced.

The White House didn't immediately comment on his condition. The Walter Reed National Military Medical Center is in suburban Maryland.

Queen Elizabeth Honours Joshua With OBE
I offer my honest congratulations to these recipients on their worthy honours. In total 1,057 people have received an award in 2018.

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

Mr. Kudlow is nominally in favour of free trade, but has backed Mr. Trump's nationalistic economic agenda, which has included steel and aluminium tariffs against Canada, Mexico and the European Union, as well as threats of further tariffs on autos.

There was no additional information from the White House or second source, rather it was only Trump's twitter account.

Mr Kudlow made headlines after the G7 summit when he appeared on Sunday morning talks shows to deliver a blistering attack on Justin Trudeau, the Canadian prime minister.
