Larry Kudlow has suffered a heart attack, Trump says

Kudlow, 70, had traveled with Trump to Canada for a contentious meeting of the Group of Seven industrial nations on Friday and Saturday, and he had defended the president vigorously on television on Sunday.

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

"Our Great Larry Kudlow, who has been working so hard on trade and the economy, has just suffered a heart attack", President Trump wrote.

Canada pushed for a fast deal - with Mr. Trudeau dispatching two of his top staffers to the White House in a bid to reach one in mid-May - in which Ottawa would agree to USA demands on auto content rules and changes to Canada's protected dairy market in exchange for the Trump administration dropping most of its other protectionist demands.

Kudlow's condition wasn't immediately released by Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

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.

The famously pinstripe-suited Kudlow succeeded Gary Cohn, a former Goldman Sachs executive who left the post in a dispute over Trump's decision to impose tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.

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

There was no additional information from the White House or second source, rather it was only Trump's twitter account. Since then, he's hosted a variety of shows on the network, including "The Kudlow Report" and "Kudlow & Cramer". He was a CNBC contributor before returning to the White House this year.
