Donald Trump Reveals Larry Kudlow Suffered a Heart Attack

President Donald Trump tweeted Monday that his economic advisor Larry Kudlow has suffered a heart attack.

Trump's tweet came minutes before he is expected to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un to discuss a possible deal for the country to denuclearize.

No additional information on Kudlow's condition was immediately available from the White House. The president tweeted that Kudlow is now at Walter Reed Medical Center.

Kudlow's description of events was contested by reporters who covered Trudeau's news conference.

Mr Kudlow made headlines after the G7 summit when he appeared on Sunday morning talks shows to deliver a blistering attack on Justin Trudeau, the Canadian prime minister.

A longtime television commentator, Kudlow, 70, was hired by Trump in March to replace Gary Cohn as director of the National Economic Council.

"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". 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 was a CNBC contributor before returning to the White House this year.

Larry Kudlow was taken to a Washington-area hospital, Mr. Trump announced on Twitter.
