Larry Kudlow In The Hospital After Having Heart Attack

Trump’s top economic adviser Larry Kudlow

President Donald Trump tweeted Monday night that National Economic Council director Larry Kudlow had suffered a heart attack and is at Walter Reed Medical Center.

USA conservative commentator and economic analyst Larry Kudlow speaks on the set of CNBC at the closing bell of the Dow Industrial Average at the New York Stock Exchange on March 8, 2018 in New York. The president tweeted that Kudlow is now at Walter Reed Medical Center.

He raised eyebrows on Sunday when he described Justin Trudeau as having "stabbed us in the back" at the Group of Seven summit after the Canadian leader said Trump's decision to invoke national security to justify United States tariffs was "kind of insulting" to Canadian veterans.

Trump did not elaborate on Kudlow's condition.

One of Donald Trump's closest aides has suffered a heart attack. Ironically, Kudlow opposed the tariffs as well, writing an open letter to Trump saying such a protectionist move is nothing but a tax hike in disguise, that gets passed on to consumers at the cash register.

Trump chose Kudlow, a CNBC business news personality and former Reagan Administration official, in March to succeed Gary Cohn, a former Goldman Sachs executive who left the administration over Trump's decision to impose tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.

Kudlow accompanied Trump this weekend to the annual G7 meeting in Quebec, where the president traded barbs with the leaders of Canada, Germany and France over trade.
