The Mercury (Pottstown, PA) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK » Larry Kud­low, the prom­i­nent eco­nomic com­men­ta­tor who joined the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion this year as the pres­i­dent’s top eco­nomic ad­viser, is re­cov­er­ing af­ter suf­fer­ing a “very mild” heart at­tack, the White House said Tues­day.

White House press sec­re­tary Sarah Huck­abee San­ders said in a state­ment that Kud­low is ex­pected to re­main at Wal­ter Reed Na­tional Mil­i­tary Med­i­cal Cen­ter as “a standard pre­cau­tion” af­ter suf­fer­ing the heart at­tack on Mon­day.

“His doc­tors expect Larry will make a full and speedy recovery,” said San­ders. “We look for­ward to see­ing him back at work soon.”

Trump’s choice of Kud­low to be his top eco­nomic aide el­e­vated the in­flu­ence of a long­time fixture on the busi­ness news net­work CNBC.

The fa­mously pin­stripe-suited Kud­low suc­ceeded Gary Cohn, a former Gold­man Sachs ex­ec­u­tive who left the post in a dis­pute over Trump’s de­ci­sion to im­pose tar­iffs.
