Times Colonist - - World -

WASHINGTON — Larry Kud­low, the U.S. pres­i­dent’s top eco­nomic ad­viser, has been re­leased from the hospi­tal af­ter what the White House had de­scribed as a “very mild” heart at­tack.

Don­ald Trump’s press sec­re­tary, Sarah Huck­abee San­ders, said in a state­ment that Kud­low was dis­charged from Wal­ter Reed Na­tional Mil­i­tary Med­i­cal Cen­ter on Wed­nes­day.

She said doc­tors say Kud­low’s recovery “is go­ing very well” and the pres­i­dent and his aides are happy Kud­low is back home and they “look for­ward to see­ing him back to work soon.”

Kud­low joined the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion this year as di­rec­tor of the Na­tional Eco­nomic Coun­cil. He was with Trump in Canada last week for the meet­ing of the Group of Seven world lead­ers.
