Kudlow, who worked in the Office and Management and Budget during the administration of President Roald Reagan, was a longtime financial pundit for CNBC, a sister network of NBC News. Trump named him to lead the National Economic Council in March.
Vice President Mike Pence tweeted Monday night: “Karen and I are praying for our dear friend Larry Kudlow tonight.”
The news stunned titans of the financial world, including Steve Forbes, the editor in chief of Forbes magazine and a former Republican presidential candidate, who said on Twitter that his prayers were with “the wonderful, great Larry Kudlow for a swift recovery.”
David Bahnsen, a close friend of Kudlow’s and managing partner of the Bahnsen Group, a wealth management firm in California, called Kudlow “my hero, my friend, my mentor, my brother” on Twitter.
“I can only pray right now and beg everyone else to do the same,” Bahnsen wrote. “Dear God, please please please.”
