Trump was apparently referring to a review of U.S. nuclear weapons that began earlier this year, which he directed Defense Secretary James Mattis to undertake in a presidential memorandum signed during a January visit to the Pentagon.
Trump and North Korea have been exchanging escalating threats, with the North saying it was examining plans for attacking Guam.
Mattis said in a statement that the United States and its allies would win any arms race or conflict with North Korea.
On global markets, the strong rhetoric and sharp increase in tensions drove investors out of stocks and other risky assets on Wednesday and into textbook safe havens like gold and Treasuries.
A Nuclear Posture Review can "review anything" from how many nuclear weapons you have to what kind they are and how they're configured, Lewis said, and is used to determine the president's future nuclear policy.
On Wednesday, Trump followed up his "fire and fury" warning with a boast about USA nuclear capabilities.
Mr. Trump did order a review of US nuclear posture and strategy early in his presidency, but that's different from modernization and bringing old systems up to usable standards.
President Donald Trump says the United States' nuclear arsenal is "far stronger and more powerful than ever before".
Mattis warned that any action by North Korea would be grossly overmatched by the United States and that while the United States is pursuing diplomatic solutions, the combined military power of America and its allies is the most robust on Earth.
Trump's "fire and fury" remarks prompted warnings from USA officials and analysts not to engage in rhetorical slanging matches with Pyongyang.
The US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson meanwhile has moved to defend his president's remarks insisting he chose his words carefully. This morning, following yesterday's criticism of his "fire and fury" comments, President Trump continued his unsafe rhetoric towards North Korea. The UN Security Council this weekend adopted new, tougher sanctions, seeking to curtail North Korea's nuclear ambitions. "Nobody in the world, especially not North Korea, comes close to challenging our military capabilities".
Turnbull added: "If North Korea decides to carry out some of its violent threats, then obviously bad consequences will follow". The UN Security Council on August 5 voted unanimously to impose new sanctions on North Korea .

North Korea responded by claiming it is preparing a plan to fire missiles at the U.S. territory of Guam in the western Pacific. "The idea that Secretary Tillerson is going to discuss military matters is simply nonsensical". "I never said that", he said.
