President Trump tweets economic adviser Larry Kudlow hospitalized after heart attack

U.S. President Donald Trump said in a tweet that his top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, had suffered a heart attack and was in the hospital. "He is now in Walter Reed Medical Center", said the message sent minutes before he was scheduled to meet Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, in Singapore.

Kudlow's condition wasn't immediately known. "He is now in Walter Reed Medical Center", Trump tweeted. Kudlow's wife, Judy Pond, told the Washington Post late Monday night that "he's doing fine".

Kudlow's description of events was contested by reporters who covered Trudeau's news conference.

Kudlow, a former Wall Street economist and television host, was selected by Trump to serve as Director of the National Economic Council in March.

Square Enix and Capcom, meanwhile, will have a Final Fantasy XIV - Monster Hunter World crossover event slated for Summer 2018. Not much is really shown in the trailer but anything from Platinum Games is worth keeping an eye out for.

A longtime TV personality, Kudlow, 70, succeeded former Goldman Sachs president Gary Cohn who quit Trump's team in March in protest at the decision to slap steep USA tariffs on imported steel and aluminium.

Kudlow had worked as a White House budget aide in the Reagan administration, and had also been an informal advisor to the 2016 Trump campaign.

At the White House, however, he was one of the most visible and vocal of advisers arguing that the president was simply trying to fix a broken global trade system in which the United States was not being treated fairly.
