Kudlow will 'make a full and speedy recovery,' White House says

Larry Kudlow, the National Economic Council director, was released from the hospital Wednesday after suffering a heart attack earler this week, the White House announced.

Presidential spokeswoman Sarah Sanders quoted doctors at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center as saying that "Larry's recovery is going very well".

"The called lasted 20 seconds".

The economist and former television host will be back to work at the White House "soon", Sanders said. Kudlow, along with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, is known as an advocate within the administration of more robust trade in opposition to more protectionist views advocated by trade adviser Peter Navarro.

Kudlow joined the Trump administration this year as director of the National Economic Council. Yet Kudlow has defended Trump's trade policies in public since his appointment.

Trump's choice of Kudlow to be his top economic aide elevated the influence of a longtime fixture on the business news network CNBC.

Kudlow appeared Sunday on CNN to back up Trump's complaint that he had been blindsided by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's criticism of his tariff threats at a news conference that followed the G-7 meeting in Canada. Kudlow said Trudeau had engaged in a "sophomoric, political stunt for domestic consumption". He has also worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of NY.
