On Tuesday, June 12, 2018- Sarah Sanders, White House spokeswoman reported that Larry Kudlow, White House economic adviser, also a staunch defender of President Donald Trump’s tough stance on global trade, is been suffering a heart attack.
Trump also announced Kudlow’s heart attack news by posting on Social Media, just before he met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.
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”. Sanders, who was traveling with the president, told reporters that Kudlow was now “in good condition” and “doing well.”
Kudlow joined with the president at the Group of Seven summit in Quebec, held on Friday and Saturday. He has also done several media interviews on Sunday to defend Trump after the president’s trade spat with summit host Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Kudlow is an ardent advocate of “supply-side” economic policies that focus on cutting taxes and reducing regulations, has also served as an economic adviser to former President Ronald Reagan in the 1980s, had also worked on Wall Street. He has acknowledged ups and downs in his life, having been addicted to drugs and alcohol before getting sober more than 20 years ago.
before being the part of White House job, he was a CNBC contributor, argued the metals tariffs Trump had announced would harm consumers. When he joined for the White House job, he co-authored an article that argued such tariffs were akin to sanctions on the United States itself.
Moreover, Kudlow was one of the most visible and vocal advisers, arguing that the president was simply trying to fix a broken global trade system in which the United States was not being treated fairly.
