Kudlow's Full Recovery Seen After Heart Attack, White House Says

13 June 2018

President Donald Trump's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, has been released from the hospital after what the White House had described as a "very mild" heart attack. "Hogie" is praying for you!"

Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council and an assistant to Trump, is expected to remain at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center as a standard precaution after experiencing what his doctors said was a very mild heart attack on Monday, the White House said in a statement. White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a Twitter posting.

Minutes before Trump met with North Korea's Kim Jong Un in Singapore, the president tweeted, "Our Great Larry Kudlow, who has been working so hard on trade and the economy, has just suffered a heart attack".

Kudlow has been at the center of the US President's trade feuds in recent months, joining US delegations in Beijing and Canada to address trade disputes.

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

Kudlow accompanied Trump this weekend to the annual G-7 meeting in Quebec, where the president traded barbs with the leaders of Canada, Germany and France over trade. He made headlines recently when he criticized Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for "betraying" the president after the G-7 economic summit.

A former chief economist for a Wall Street firm, he also served as associate director for economics and planning in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) during the Reagan administration.
