BREAKING: Trump Says Larry Kudlow Has Suffered a Heart Attack

President Donald Trump announced on Twitter Monday that Larry Kudlow, his top economic adviser, had suffered a heart attack.

“Our Great Larry Kudlow, who has been working so hard on trade and the economy, has just suffered a heart attack,” Trump tweeted, just minutes before his highly anticipated summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
