National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow has been discharged from the hospital after being admitted to Walter Reed Medical Center for suffering a "mild" heart attack, according to the White House. White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a Twitter posting.

Kudlow "is expected to remain at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center as a standard precaution after experiencing what his doctors say, was a very mild heart attack yesterday", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement sent as she and President Donald Trump, along with other members of the USA delegation, made their way back to Washington from Singapore.

As President Trump was on his way to the historic summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un Monday, he tweeted stunning news about his economic advisor, Larry Kudlow. He is now in Walter Reed Medical Center.

The company SpaceX plans to build several objects with the latest technology at the cosmodrome on Cape Canaveral (Florida). This will help in the efficient recycling of the materials that will potentially save billions of dollars per launch.

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. He was with Trump in Canada last week for the meeting of the Group of Seven world leaders.

Kudlow participated in a series of television interviews defending Trump in his trade spat with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

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 on imported steel and aluminum. He has also worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of NY.
