Larry Kudlow, President Donald Trump’s top economic advisor, is expected to make a full recovery from what is now being described as a “very mild” heart attack on Monday, according to a press release, the Daily Beast reports.
Although he will remain at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center as “standard precaution,” the statement says, “His doctors expect Larry will make a full and speedy recovery.” The New York Times reports that Kudlow spent the morning calling friends and colleagues, many of whom told the Times that he will recover and return to work quickly. “I don’t think there’s a chance he’ll resign,” said Kudlow’s friend and mentor Arthur Laffer. “This is the culmination of his life. And it’s that time for Trump, too. He needs Larry.” Laffer added that “I do not think the stress levels at the White House are anything like he had at CNBC.”
