Canada's premier appeared to have struck up an unlikely friendship with Mr Trump at their first meeting, saying he would never dream of "lecturing" his host even if the USA president's "America First" agenda is anathema to the arch liberal.
Or maybe they're just dizzy from the on-again, off-again trade war inside Trump's divided economic team.
"The American President may not mind being isolated, but neither do we mind signing a 6 country agreement if need be".
Kudlow also said he relayed Trump's message to a senior member of the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's office.

Canada also announced retaliatory tariffs on $12.8 billion (£9.5 billion) worth of USA goods, including steel and aluminum products, mayonnaise, and sleeping bags.
Macron threatened to exclude the United States from the joint statement issued every year at the end of the G7 summit, part of an global pushback against Trump efforts to change trade rules.
Critics argue that the growing USA isolation is risky at a time when Trump is making diplomatic overtures with North Korea and in the Middle East and could use the support of allies. Among allies, there was even been speculation that Trump might walk out of the meetings - or even decide not to show up.
"The U.S. tariff on steel is affecting those workers today", said Scheer, who noted Canada's steel industry employs more than 23,000 workers and indirectly supports more than 100,000 jobs.
