Larry Kudlow had heart attack, Donald Trump says

The president's top economic adviser has suffered a heart attack, President Trump said.

"Our Great Larry Kudlow, who has been working so hard on trade and the economy, has just suffered a heart attack", President Trump wrote.

Kudlow's condition wasn't immediately known.

White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow speaks during a television interview outside the West Wing of the White House on May 18, 2018. The Walter Reed National Military Medical Center is in suburban Maryland. Kudlow's wife, Judy Pond, told the Washington Post late Monday night that "he's doing fine".

Kudlow had joined Trump at the contentious G-7 at the end of last week.

During President Ronald Reagan's first term, Kudlow was associate director for economics and planning in the White House's Office of Management and Budget. He replaced Gary Cohn, who resigned after losing his battle against imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union" show on Sunday, Kudlow called Trudeau's criticism of Trump's tariff proposals "a betrayal" that "really kind of stabbed us in the back".

"He made an error", Kudlow said.

When he was a CNBC contributor before taking the White House job, Kudlow argued the metals tariffs Trump had announced would harm consumers.

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.
