Donald Trump's economic adviser Larry Kudlow has heart attack

Larry Kudlow Donald Trump

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday (Jun 12) tweeted that his top economic advisor had suffered a heart attack.

Trump announced Kudlow's heart attack in a tweet sent minutes before he met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

But since joining the Trump administration, he has faithfully executed his boss's agenda - arguing for instance that the European Union must make "concessions" if it wishes to be exempt from tariffs, and signaling the United States is prepared to walk away from two-decade-old North American Free Trade Agreement.

He made headlines recently when he criticized Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for "betraying" the president after the G-7 economic 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, a veteran CNBC anchor and commentator, was brought in largely because of his close relationship with Trump, and because of his visible comfort on television speaking about the value of the low-tax, high-growth proposals that Trump and Republicans have pushed.

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

After working in President Ronald Reagan's administration, Kudlow moved to Wall Street and, though he never completed a master's program in economics and policy at Princeton University, served as chief economist at Bear Stearns.

He later advised former New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman.

Mr Kudlow joined the Trump administration earlier this year.
