Trump says economic adviser Larry Kudlow has 'suffered heart attack'

Larry Kudlow

The president tweeted that Kudlow is now at Walter Reed Medical Center.

"I have made it very clear to the President that it is not something we relish doing, but it something that we absolutely will do", Trudeau said.

As a commentator, Kudlow had strongly backed Trump's moves to cut taxes and reduce business regulations but was openly critical toward the president's tariffs moves.

Kudlow soon settled comfortably into the world of political and economic commentary, working at the conservative magazine National Review and becoming a host of CNBC shows beginning in 2001.

Trump then headed to his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, whom Kudlow referred to as "the insane nuclear tyrant in North Korea".

Kudlow's condition wasn't immediately known.

For five years before his White House appointment in March, Kudlow hosted a show on CNBC on business and politics, and he's worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of NY.

Trudeau, in a news conference on Saturday, had reiterated his strong objections to steep US tariffs on Canadian exports of steel and aluminum.

Last week, Mr. Kudlow floated the possibility of dividing NAFTA talks and cutting separate bilateral deals with Canada and Mexico. As recently as Sunday, he had appeared on TV defending the president's attacks on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, saying that Trudeau had committed a "betrayal".

Trump tweeted just minutes before his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that Kudlow is being treated at Walter Reed Medical Center.
