President Donald Trump has announced one of his key advisors has had a heart attack and is being treated in Walter Reed Hospital. There is no word on his condition but at age 70 it is not good news.
President Trump said: “Our Great Larry Kudlow, who has been working so hard on trade and the economy, has just suffered a heart attack. He is now in Walter Reed Medical Center.”

The 70-year-old Kudlow was taken to Walter Reed Hospital after suffering a heart attack and no one has revealed how serious it might be.
Kudlow accompanied Trump this weekend to the annual G-7 meeting in Quebec, where the president traded barbs with the leaders of Canada, Germany and France over trade. On Sunday, Kudlow said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau “really kind of stabbed us in the back” after criticizing U.S. tariffs on imported steel and aluminum and Trump’s positions on trade in a news conference following the summit.
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 New York. During President Ronald Reagan’s first term, Kudlow was associate director for economics and planning in the White House’s Office of Management and Budget.
Join us in wishing Larry a quick recovery as we send our prayers out to his family.
