PAMELA BROWN (GUEST HOST): You have President Macron of France tweeting, saying, look, okay, President Trump you can be an isolationist, the six of us will reach a deal. Can the US afford to be the odd man out with our allies? 

STEPHEN MOORE (CNN ECONOMICS ANALYST): Well, look, the fact of the matter is, the United States is the alpha male in the world economy today. Every nation needs access to American markets -- 

BROWN: -- that's the case maybe today in your view. 

MOORE: They might not think so, but look, every country -- and by the way, Canada, Canada is our closest ally by far. It makes no sense to me to be picking any kind of fight with Canada.
