Donald Trump says top economic adviser Larry Kudlow suffers heart attack

Donald Trump says top economic adviser Larry Kudlow suffers heart attack

U.S. President Donald Trump's chief economic advisor, a key player in the White House's trade war who blasted Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over the weekend, suffered a heart attack Monday evening. "He is now in Walter Reed Medical Center", Trump wrote on Twitter, just minutes before a historic summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

It was not immediately known when Kudlow suffered the heart attack or what his condition was.

Washington Post reporter Robert Costa received a statement from Kudlow's wife Judy Kudlow.

"It was a betrayal", Kudlow told Tapper of Trudeau having said in the news conference Saturday that Canada will "move forward with retaliatory measures" on July 1 in response to the Trump administration's decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico. The president tweeted that Kudlow is now at Walter Reed Medical Center.

Kudlow, 70, a conservative commentator, replaced Gary Cohn who resigned in March.

"He made an error", Kudlow said. Before joining the White House, he had vigorously opposed the protectionist trade agenda that Trump promoted, but he became a forceful advocate for Trump's policies since joining the administration.

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.
