Kudlow is returning home two days after suffering what the White House called a “very mild” heart attack, which was first announced on Twitter by Trump.

The health scare followed Kudlow’s appearance at the contentious Group of Seven summit last week in Canada, where Trump sparred with U.S. allies over trade. 

Kudlow participated in a series of television interviews defending Trump in his trade spat with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. 

“He really kind of stabbed us in the back,” Kudlow said of Trudeau during a Sunday appearance on CNN.
