Mr. Trump last month shocked Republicans when he reached a deal with Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California, to extend the debt limit, suggesting he may be open to future deals with Democrats.

Trump tweets that he called Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer on Friday. "ObamaCare is badly broken, big premiums", Trump wrote.

Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer has always expressed a willingness to work with both the President and the GOP on a comprehensive plan, however key Republicans have refused to even hear Democrats out.

After the Senate failed to approve the Republican bill that would have repealed parts of Obamacare in July, the Democrats in Congress urged Trump to "stop the sabotage" of the Affordable Care Act and work with the party to improve healthcare.

In a series of tweets, Trump has been calling on the GOP to "keep their promise to America!" and "give America great healthcare". He added: "A good place to start might be the Alexander-Murray negotiations that would stabilize the system and lower costs".

However, Schumer appeared to put the brakes on any deal that would dismantle ObamaCare, former Democratic President Barack Obama's signature 2010 heath care law.
