In response, Trump quipped to Trudeau, "Didn't you guys burn down the White House?" referring to the War of 1812.
In what's been seen a jab at Mr Trump, he added: "Nobody is forever".
The two leaders offered that olive branch to Trump on Thursday ahead of his arrival at the G7 summit in Quebec on Friday, where disagreements on trade will be front and centre.
USA trading partners are furious over President Donald Trump's decision last week to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico as part of his "America First" agenda. In a tweet the next morning, he mused about shutting Canadian wood products out of America.
The G7 Summit gets underway in Charlevoix, Quebec today as world leaders sit down for two days of talks on issues like economic growth, gender equality, climate change and plastic pollution. "Look forward to seeing them tomorrow", Trump wrote.
Trudeau and his fellow G7 leaders will try to persuade Trump to reverse the duties during the summit.
The UK was quick to hit back at Mr Trump's suggestion, insisting Russian Federation must "change its approach" before even being considered for membership. She was not named among world leaders due to sit with the U.S. president.

But tensions with the current President are on a different level. "If President Trump actually referenced the War of 1812, that is frankly absurd".
The reference itself is not entirely historically accurate. Canada, which was a British colony at the time, did not gain independence until 1867. "It will start first of all to hurt USA workers".
Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland, pressed about a Washington Post report that said the White House was considering additional economic penalties against Canada, told reporters that Ottawa was unaware of any such move.
