Larry Kudlow, President Donald Trump's top economic adviser, suffered a heart attack Monday.

President Donald Trump's chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow has suffered a heart attack.

Trump's tweet came minutes before he is expected to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un to discuss a possible deal for the country to denuclearize.

Kudlow soon settled comfortably into the world of political and economic commentary, working at the conservative magazine National Review and becoming a host of CNBC shows beginning in 2001.

During internal White House deliberations this spring, Mr. Kudlow argued in favour of cutting a quick deal with Canada and Mexico to resolve NAFTA renegotiations, said sources with knowledge of the confidential talks.

The White House didn't immediately comment on his condition. He previously served in the Reagan administration and emerged as a leading evangelist for tax cuts and smaller government.

Kudlow appeared on Jake Tapper's CNN Sunday Beltway show, State Of The Union, this past Sunday, accusing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of undermining the U.S. and the G-7 confab with his comments.

Kudlow has been married to his third wife, Judy Pond, since 1986. Before joining the White House, he had vigorously opposed the protectionist trade agenda that Trump promoted, but he became a forceful advocate for Trump's policies since joining the administration.

Kudlow, who is a wry and upbeat speaker, has adopted some of Trump's hard-line rhetoric while working inside the West Wing.
