Kudlow released from hospital after heart attack


Larry Kudlow, President Trump’s top economic adviser, was discharged on Wednesday morning from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center after receiving treatment for a heart attack, according to the White House. 

“Doctors say Larry’s recovery is going very well,” press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. “The president and the administration are happy Larry is back home and look forward to seeing him back to work soon.”{mosads}

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. 

The 70-year-old former cable news commentator was tapped to lead the National Economic Council in March, following the departure of Gary Cohn.
