Before President Donald Trump sits down with a third-generation North Korean autocrat, he will face what may well turn out to be a tougher crowd - some of America's oldest allies. "People should realize how serious he is in that respect", said Kudlow. "That is the best option we have today", Macron said during the joint press conference with Trudeau.
Macron's comments come as the leaders of the G7 countries are preparing to meet at a trade summit in Canada, which analysts expect will turn into a showdown on trade deals, given Trump's repeated insistence that the United States has the "worst trade deals ever made".
Still, the French leader pledged to have a "productive and frank discussion with President Trump at the G7", the Group of 7 industrialized democracies.

The French leader also slammed Trump's recent decision to impose import tariffs on steel and aluminum from Europe, Canada and Mexico. In a statement on Thursday, the White House called out Trudeau by name.
"President Trump is very clear with respect to his trade reform efforts that we will do what is necessary to protect the United States, its businesses, and its workforce", he said.
Regardless of what the rest of the world might think, Trump is deadly serious about reforming a global trade system he believes is fundamentally broken, Kudlow said. A new report says the USA president is not pleased about the visit.
The summit on Friday and Saturday in Charlevoix, Quebec, will be the first chance that G7 leaders will have to confront Trump in person since he imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union last week. "I don't want to make a prediction".

One source with knowledge of the matter said that Italy wanted to "create as much space as possible to continue the dialogue with the U.S.", noting that new Italian Prime Minister Guiseppe Conte, a political novice, would be treading carefully in Canada because he "needs to see the dynamics of the group". They're not admiring us. "In reality, we are the closest allies and friends that the United States has had for quite some time".
Edward Alden, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, said this marked the lowest point in decades in Canada-U.S. relations, describing the two countries as allies that have "fought and died alongside each other" since World War I.
"In this environment, above all we always have to stay polite, stay productive and try to convince (them), to keep the United States on board because they are our historical ally and we need them", said Mr Macron.
