We have the phrase
Make friends with him
However, I'm wondering if it's ambiguous:
You go from a state of non-friendship with him, to a state of friendship.
You both go out looking for friends.
Perhaps there's some subtlety here I'm missing, but it seems like it's ambiguous.
Question: Can 跟他交朋友 mean both "become friends with him" and "with him, make [other] friends"?
