Trump Adviser Kudlow Suffers Heart Attack, Expected to Make ‘Full’ Recovery

As the world waited to watch President Trump meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Monday night (U.S. time), Trump surprised many with a tweet that had nothing to do with Kim or North Korea: his adviser, Larry Kudlow, had suffered a heart attack.

Kudlow is an economist and a relatively new adviser to Trump. He used to be a host on CNBC.

Shortly after Trump’s tweet, Kudlow’s wife confirmed to The Washington Post that Kudlow is “doing fine.”

And White House spokesman Hogan Gidley tweeted on Tuesday morning that Kudlow “is expected to make a full and speedy recovery after a very mild heart attack.”

Bloomberg explained on Tuesday morning how Kudlow has been a key aide to Trump in recent weeks.

Kudlow, a former economic adviser to President Ronald Reagan and a Wall Street economist, has played a key role in ongoing trade talks, including disputes with China that led Trump to threaten tariffs. 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 is likely eager to get back to work for the president, amid trade disputes with China, Mexico, Canada, and the European Union.
