Trump Adviser Larry Kudlow Suffers Heart Attack, President Tweets On Way to Kim Jong Un Meeting

Larry Kudlow, President Donald Trump's top economic adviser, has suffered a heart attack and is being treated at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington D.C.

Trump tweeted the news just hours before his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. "Our Great Larry Kudlow, who has been working so hard on trade and the economy, has just suffered a heart attack," he wrote.

The 70 year-old Kudlow's condition is not immediately known. Kudlow's wife, Judy Pond, told the Washington Post late Monday night that "he's doing fine. Doctors here are fabulous."

Kudlow, who was a CNBC host before replacing Gary Cohn as National Economic Council director, most recently accompanied Trump to Quebec for the G7 meeting, where he advised the president to hang tough on trade and tariff negotiations.

The economic adviser appeared on CNN's State of The Union Sunday Morning. Kudlow joined the program to defend Trump's decision not to sign the G7 joint agreement due to the actions of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Trudeau "holds a press conference and says 'the U.S. is insulting,' he said that 'Canada has to stand up for itself,' he says that we 'are the problem with tariffs," Kudlow told CNN host Jake Tapper. "He was polarizing. He really kind of stabbed us in the back, he did a great disservice to the whole G-7, he betrayed them."

Prior to hosting a show on CNBC, Kudlow worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and in President Ronald Reagan's administration.

Kudlow has been married to his third wife, Judy Pond, since 1986.
