Trump economic adviser Kudlow to stay in hospital after heart attack

President Trump tweeted that his economic advisor Larry Kudlow had suffered a heart attack just minutes before the president met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Kudlow "is expected to remain at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center as a standard precaution after experiencing what his doctors say, was a very mild heart attack yesterday", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement sent as she and President Donald Trump, along with other members of the United States delegation, made their way back to Washington from Singapore.

"The President and the Administration are happy Larry is back home and look forward to seeing him back to work soon", Sanders added.

He's expected to make a full recovery.

Kudlow joined the Trump administration this year as director of the National Economic Council.

Kudlow accompanied Trump this weekend to the annual G-7 meeting in Quebec, where the president traded barbs with the leaders of Canada, Germany and France over trade. "He should pull back on his statements".

For five years before his White House appointment in March, Kudlow hosted a CNBC show on business and politics.

With Trump's tax cuts already being implemented, Kudlow has been advising a president who pushed to tax foreign imports - a policy Kudlow personally opposes. During Reagan's first term, he was associate director for economics and planning in the White House's Office of Management and Budget. He left that position in the early 1990s to treat an addiction to alcohol and drugs.
