US President Donald Trump's top economic adviser Larry Kudlow has suffered a heart attack and is in Walter Reed Medical National Military Center in Bethesda, Maryland, APA reports quoting sputniknews.
Trump announced Kudlow suffered a heart attack a mere 25 minutes before the US President was slated to meet with Kim Jong Un of North Korea at the Capella Hotel in Singapore.
Kudlow replaced former adviser Gary Cohn as director of the US National Economic Council on April 2, 2018. Kudlow is 70 years old and began his career at the New York Federal Reserve as a junior staff economist prior to taking a private position on Wall Street.
The adviser made headlines over the weekend amid Trump's tariff tiff with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, telling CNN that the PM "stabbed us in the back." Kudlow took part in the G-7 negotiations in Quebec, Canada.
