Trump economic adviser Kudlow suffers heart attack

Larry Kudlow, the National Economic Council director, has been hospitalized after suffering a heart attack, President Trump said Tuesday from Singapore.

Trump tweeted the news of Kudlow's hospitalization while en route to a summit in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Kudlow returned from Canada over the weekend after joining world leaders and members of Trump's White House circle for a combative Group of 7 summit.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow gives a press briefing about upcoming G7 in the White House in Washington, U.S., June 6, 2018.

Kudlow served in the Reagan administration and was a high-flying Wall Street executive in the 1990s, before undergoing treatment for drug and alcohol problems.

A longtime TV personality, Kudlow, 70, succeeded former Goldman Sachs president Gary Cohn who quit Trump's team in March in protest at the decision to slap steep United States tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.

Kudlow was born in Englewood and attended Dwight Englewood School, a private prep school.

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.

He later advised former New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman.

Kudlow, 70, joined Team Trump in mid-March, coming from CNBC.
