Larry Kudlow has suffered a heart attack, Trump says

U.S. President Donald Trump's chief economic advisor, a key player in the White House's trade war who blasted Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over the weekend, suffered a heart attack Monday evening.

"Our Great Larry Kudlow, who has been working so hard on trade and the economy, has just suffered a heart attack", Trump said from Singapore before his summit with Kim Jong Un.

Kudlow has been taken to Walter Reed Medical Center, the president said.

Mr. Kudlow's condition was not immediately clear.

He left early, and as he flew to Singapore , he tweeted that he was yanking the USA out of the traditional group statement. Kim had arrived hours earlier in a plane loaned by China , which for decades has been North Korea's only major ally.

"It was a betrayal", Kudlow told Tapper of Trudeau having said in the news conference Saturday that Canada will "move forward with retaliatory measures" on July 1 in response to the Trump administration's decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico. The meeting was shadowed by the Trump administration's escalation of rhetoric on trade and tariffs and splintered shortly after the president left Quebec and tweeted he was pulling back his approval of a joint statement by the group.

Kudlow, a veteran CNBC anchor and commentator, was brought in largely because of his close relationship with Trump, and because of his visible comfort on television speaking about the value of the low-tax, high-growth proposals that Trump and Republicans have pushed.

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.
