Tillerson said governments that had felt "neglect and outright dismissal" under President Barack Obama were eager for "the re-engagement of America."

Obama had notably frosty relations with leaders in Saudi Arabia and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. But he was greatly admired in most of Europe, polls showed, and worked closely with Pope Francis to restore diplomatic relations with Cuba.

As part of his "America First" policy, Trump said during last year's campaign that he was only interested in engaging internationally when the United States stood to gain.

"I feel no effect ... when the president is taken to task by the press," Kelly said.
