Washington: Larry Kudlow, top economic adviser to US president Donald Trump, suffered a "very mild" heart attack on Tuesday and has been admitted to a military hospital.
Kudlow, 70, director of the National Economic Council, White House, has been leading the Trump administration's efforts in shaping the country's economic policies and trade talks with other countries.
The doctors said it was a "very mild" heart attack.
"Larry is currently in good condition at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and his doctors expect he will make a full and speedy recovery," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said. The doctors said this was a very mild heart attack, she said.
"The president and his administration sent their thoughts and prayers to Larry and his family," Sanders said.
Larry's wife, Judy, said he was doing "fine". Trump too tweeted on Larry's health on Tuesday:
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.
