Prime Minister John Key says he missed a call from United States president-elect Donald Trump in the chaotic aftermath of the Kaikoura earthquake.

The missed call happened on Monday.

"I certainly didn't see it... it was crazy times," Mr Key told TVNZ.

His people had been trying to set up a call to congratulate Mr Trump on his election victory and he expected it would be a combination of a return call and making contact over the Kaikoura quake.

Mr Key said he also had calls from other world leaders but had turned down offers of international assistance.
