National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow has had a heart attack, according to a tweet by President Donald Trump.

Trump tweeted just after 8:30 Eastern Time on Monday: "Our Great Larry Kudlow, who has been working so hard on trade and the economy, has just suffered a heart attack. He is now in Walter Reed Medical Center."

Kudlow is Trump's chief economic adviser. On Sunday, he criticized Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, publicly aligning himself with similar statements made by Trump.

Kudlow is also known by many as the former host of "The Kudlow Report," a business and politics show on CNBC. Kudlow worked for CNBC for over 25 years. 

Kudlow's wife reportedly told the Washington Post that he is doing fine.
