Trump Says Economic Adviser Kudlow Suffers Heart Attack – Bloomberg

Donald Trump’s top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, will remain in the hospital a day after a heart attack as a “standard precaution” but is expected to recover, a White House aide said Tuesday.
“His doctors expect Larry will make a full and speedy recovery,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement Tuesday afternoon. “We look forward to seeing him back at work soon.”
She added that his doctors at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center consider Kudlow’s heart attack to be “very mild.”
Trump announced Kudlow’s heart attack in a tweet from Singapore shortly before meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Conservative economist Art Laffer, who has been a friend of Kudlow for decades, said Tuesday that Kudlow called him last night from Walter Reed to let him know he was doing fine.
“The called lasted 20 seconds. He just said, ’I want you to know I’m fine, I’m going to be fine,”’ Laffer said.
Kudlow, a former economic adviser to President Ronald Reagan and a Wall Street economist, has played a key role in trade talks, including disputes with China that led Trump to threaten tariffs. Kudlow, along with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, is known as an advocate within the administration of more robust trade in opposition to more protectionist views advocated by trade adviser Peter Navarro.
He co-authored an editorial arguing tariffs are a tax on consumers earlier this year before Trump chose him as director of the White House National Economic Council. Yet Kudlow has defended Trump’s trade policies in public since his appointment.
Kudlow accompanied Trump this weekend to the annual G-7 meeting in Quebec, where the president traded barbs with the leaders of Canada, Germany and France over trade. On Sunday, Kudlow said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau “really kind of stabbed us in the back” after criticizing U.S. tariffs on imported steel and aluminum and Trump’s positions on trade in a news conference following the summit.
For five years before his White House appointment in March, Kudlow hosted a CNBC show on business and politics. During Reagan’s first term, he was associate director for economics and planning in the White House’s Office of Management and Budget. He has also worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

Donald Trump thinks G-7 flap will help with Kim Jong Un; others unsure

More: Trump says he will meet North Korea’s Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Singapore Trump’s meeting with Kim, the first ever between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader, is scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday, local time — 9 p.m. Monday in Washington, D.C. A day after landing in Singapore, the former British colony that is at the crossroads of global trade and finance, Trump met Monday with the sponsor of the Kim summit sponsor, Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. During a brief photo opportunity, Trump praised the professionalism of his Singapore hosts. The prime minister also met with Kim on Sunday. Trump is also scheduled to visit Monday with employees of the U.S. embassy in Singapore. Meanwhile, diplomats from the United States and North Korea huddled at a Ritz Carlton hotel in Singapore to hash out agenda items for the highly anticipated meeting, the White House said. An air of mystery continued to surround much of the Trump-Kim summit. Reuters reported that Kim may leave Singapore at 2 p.m. Tuesday, just five hours after the start of the meeting with Trump. U.S. officials said that is not their understanding, and that it’s possible the leaders could meet again later on Tuesday. North Korea’s state news agency struck an optimistic note about the summit, saying Kim plans to discuss “the issue of building a permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism on the Korean peninsula, the issue of realizing the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and other issues of mutual concern.” Trade generated Trump’s problems at the G-7 summit this past weekend in Canada. Canadian and European leaders pledged to retaliate against the United States — and Trump — for placing tariffs on their exports by imposing tariffs of their own taxing U.S. products. Trump accused the G-7 of unfair trade practices, and singled out Trudeau in particular in a tweet for being allegedly “very dishonest & weak.” In a series of Monday tweets from Singapore, Trump defended his position by saying “Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal.” In another post, Trump asked why he should “allow countries to continue to make Massive Trade Surpluses, as they have for decades, while our Farmers, Workers & Taxpayers have such a big and unfair price to pay?” The issue at the Singapore summit: North Korea’s nuclear weapons. Trump is offering to lift economic sanctions on North Korea if it agrees to a complete and verifiable elimination of its nuclear weapons programs. The American president has expressed confidence that Kim will take him up on this “one-shot opportunity” to help improve North Korea’s standard of living. In the past, Kim has refused to give up nuclear weapons, calling them essential to his country’s survival. Some analysts said Trump’s problems at the G-7 could put pressure on him to deliver on Singapore, perhaps to Kim’s benefit. “The G-7 blowup increases the chance that Trump makes concessions so that the Kim summit looks like a success,” said Daniel W. Drezner, a professor of international politics with the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. “Otherwise,” Drezner said, “he’ll be 0-for-2 on this trip.” Seeking to tamp down expectations, Trump has described the summit as more of a get-to-know-you type of session, and the start of a process leading to ultimate denuclearization. While there is a good chance that Trump and Kim will “establish a process of staged disarmament,” that effort “will take years,” said Joseph Cirincione, president of Ploughshares Fund, a global security foundation. “It depends at least as much in what the U.S. does as what North Korea promises,” he said. “Remember, this is going to be a deal where both sides give something, both sides compromise.” CONNECT 36 COMMENT EMAIL MORE

(Photo: Red Huber, Orlando Sentinel via AP) CONNECT 8 COMMENT EMAIL MORE Authorities in Orlando on Monday said a suspect who shot a police officer has barricaded himself in an apartment in the central Florida city with four children. Officers arrived at an apartment complex near the Universal Orlando theme park late Sunday after a woman said she been battered by the suspect, whom she described as her boyfriend, police said. Police and the suspect Gary Lindsey Jr. — who is with four children ages 1,6, 10, and 11 in the apartment — exchanged gunfire and one officer was seriously injured. The woman had left the apartment after she was allegedly assaulted. Police chief John Mina said that the officer, Kevin Valencia, was listed in critical condition with “very significant injuries” but is expected to survive. It was unclear if the suspect had been injured in the gunfire. Police negotiators urged the man to give himself up. “We are trying to negotiate with the subject so that he peacefully surrenders,” Mina said. “Our main concern right now is the safety of the children in that apartment.” Mina said that during the standoff, which began around 11:45 p.m. Sunday, police negotiators have engaged Lindsey in talks five times. Lindsey is the father of two of the children, while the other two are children of the girlfriend, according to police. Lindsey is a convicted felon who has previously faced arson and domestic abuse charges, Mina said. Judy Pepper, a resident of the apartment complex, told the Orlando Sentinel that she looked out her window after the hearing the pops of gunfire and saw three people carrying a police officer onto the grass. She said other officers arrived, cut open his shirt and appeared to be putting bandages on his neck. Then, they put him in a patrol car and sped away. “Hell, yes, I was absolutely terrified,” she said. The officer was being treated at Orlando Regional Medical Center, where he underwent surgery.
