Last week the president stated that he will announce his repeal and replacement plan in the coming weeks and that his plan would offer better care at a lower cost to Americans.
"This is a critical moment for him to get behind this", a senior Republican congressional aide told CNN.
During a meeting with health insurance executive later Monday morning, Trump repeated that he had a plan - despite evidence to the contrary - and that it was "going to be fantastic".
But he dismissed the sudden popularity of President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law, which is better known as Obamacare.
Repealing the Affordable Care Act is something the Trump Administration and the Republicans who control Congress agree on. The president alluded to such political perils in his remarks. While they said they will reserve final judgment for the point when it becomes clear where specific spending cuts will come from, they voiced worries about the prospect of slashing spending on educational and environmental initiatives, and other areas.
GOP members in the Senate have said they need Democratic support to pass their plan, and that will only come if the repeal is coupled with a replacement. The credits would be the same for people of a similar age, whether they are billionaires or live below the poverty line. Leaders are using a similar framework as a 2016 measure that directed two House committees crafting the bill to find a $1 billion each in savings from the current law - a key promise that conservatives are sticking to. We're going to make it less expensive. "They're going to say it's the Republicans' problem", Trump said.

Over the weekend, Trump said he met with Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and Florida Governor Rick Scott to discuss Obamacare.
This is reason number 577 that proves Donald Trump doesn't know the first thing about the Affordable Care Act, what Obamacare is, what the health exchanges do, what the law does, or how it affects the federal budget and deficit.
Kasich, along with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, are also now in talks to come up with a Medicaid plan that Republicans lawmakers and the White House could endorse.
An internal documents obtained by Vox from the Republican Governors Association meeting states: "Given that both of the options described above would transfer significant risk to the states, it is imperative that the federal-state partnership around Medicaid is transformed to ensure that states can efficiently and effectively manage their programs".
There has been some confusion as to whether the administration is putting forward its own plan or is working with the GOP in Congress.
