Trump told reporters all options were on the table regarding Syria. The ministry made no reference to its earlier warning that it would target USA missiles threatening its forces.
Mr Putin has been a supporter of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, with Russian military forces helping in the Syrian leader's conflict with rebel forces.
In recent documentaries, Putin has shared candid memories of his youth in a working-class neighborhood of St. Petersburg - then known as Leningrad.
"The streets of Leningrad taught me 50 years ago that when a fight is inevitable, you must strike first", was one of the recollections. "You shouldn't try to corner anyone".

Harvey, Irma, Maria, Nate won't be seen again
Irma - a Category 5 storm, the strongest designation, wrecked havoc on Caribbean islands; Barbuda was nearly completely destroyed. When it hit Puerto Rico, it was still a Category 4, and the strongest storm to hit the USA territory since 1928.
The Syrian Chemical attack that pitted Trump against Putin: could this be Cold War Two?
Alexander Yakovenko, the Russian ambassador to London, said the White Helmets, a British-funded civil defense force, were responsible for staging fake chemical attacks.
Trump's tweet was presumably in response to a threat from Russia's ambassador to Lebanon, in which the diplomat said that the Russian military would defend its ally and knock down any incoming missiles.
He did not elaborate but added that the US military stood ready to provide military options, if appropriate.
The U.S., France and Britain have been consulting about launching a military strike in Syria. Its Defense Ministry said that a dozen cruise missiles had targeted Dumayr air base. The missiles have a range of up to 450 kilometers (280 miles).
Russian Federation denies its Syrian allies used chlorine or other agents in the Saturday attack that claimed dozens of lives.
Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the top priority is to avert war in Syria and doesn't rule out the possibility of a U.S.

Peter, 59, told the WHT: "We couldn't believe that it started up again". "He loved us all with everything in him", Smith said. A fire service spokeswoman said: "Crews extinguished a second fire and a further fire investigation was carried out".
The question now is how Russian Federation responds - both to the sanctions and to any U.S. strike in Syria, where Moscow has military forces aiding Assad's regime. For the west, it is the normalisation of the use of weapons of mass destruction.
At stake in Syria is the potential for confrontation, if not outright conflict, between the US and Russian Federation, former Cold War foes whose relations have deteriorated in recent years over Moscow's intervention in Ukraine, its interference in the 2016 USA presidential election and, most recently, its support for Syrian President Bashar Assad.
As fears of a Russia confrontation with Western powers mount, French President Emmanuel Macron expressed his "deep concerns" over the situation in Syria in a phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"It will mean geopolitical shame and colossal reputational losses".
Davis explained that Putin would say, "We're going to keep this quiet, and we're going to calm things down", but in the meanwhile, "he will stab someone in the back". "America, get ready for our old reliable 10-megaton nuclear warheads". While he did not name which country Russian Federation believed was behind it, General Igor Konashenkov, a spokesman for Russia's defense ministry, blamed Britain. "We have reached the moment when the world must see justice done".
US officials have consulted with global allies on a possible joint military response to Syria's alleged poison gas attack.
