White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday that President Trump’s Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow was released from the hospital after suffering a heart attack.
Voice of America reported Sanders said that, according to doctors, Kudlow’s recovery was “going very well” and that Trump and his aides “look forward to seeing him back to work soon.”
As reported by several media outlets Monday, including The Tennessee Star, the world learned of Larry Kudlow’s medial emergency from President Trump himself, literally minutes before his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
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.

The White House released a brief statement Tuesday updating Americans on the popular advisor’s condition:
National Economic Council Director and Assistant to the President Larry Kudlow is expected to remain at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center as a standard precaution after experiencing what his doctors say was a very mild heart attack yesterday. His doctors expect Larry will make a full and speedy recovery. We look forward to seeing him back at work soon. Larry and his wife Judy wanted to express heartfelt appreciation for all of the thoughts, prayers, and well-wishes.
Sanders added via Twitter “the whole team” was with him.
Praying for my friend @larry_kudlow. Larry is smart, funny, and a true statesman. He is tough and we know he will be back hard at work soon! The whole team is with you!

Larry Kudlow was named National Economic Council Director and Assistant to the President in March of 2018 after Gary Cohn’s resignation.
