“Doctors say Larry’s recovery is going very well,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. “The President and the Administration are happy Larry is back home and look forward to seeing him back to work soon.”

Trump tweeted Monday that Kudlow was hospitalized after suffering a heart attack on that day.

In a statement on Tuesday, Sanders said that Kudlow had experienced a mild heart attack. He was treated at Walter Reed Medical Center, a military hospital in suburban Maryland.

Kudlow, born in 1947, was appointed by the president in March to replace Gary Cohn as director of the National Economic Council.

A longtime television commentator, Kudlow has been a staunch defender of Trump’s much-criticized stance on global trade.
