"We have heard from the White House and are looking to set up a phone call tomorrow," a spokeswoman for the prime minister says.

"But as you know these things can change due to scheduling. We will let you know once the call has taken place."

Mr English has a busy schedule of events on Monday, which is the Waitangi Day public holiday.

Waitangi Day commemorates the first signing of New Zealand's founding document, the Treaty of Waitangi, in 1840.

There's speculation the call will be late morning.
