"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," Trump tweeted.


Washington Post reporter Robert Costa received a statement from Kudlow's wife, Judy Kudlow.

"He's doing fine. Doctors here are fabulous," Judy Kudlow said.
