NEW YORK

Larry Kudlow, President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser, suffered a “very mild” heart attack and was being treated at a military hospital, the White House said Monday.

Kudlow was in good condition at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. She said Kudlow was doing well and that doctors expect him to make a “full and speedy recovery.”

News of Kudlow’s illness was broken by Trump himself just minutes before he met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

“Our Great Larry Kudlow, who has been working so hard on trade and the economy, has just suffered a heart attack,” Trump tweeted.
