President' Donald Trump is close to a decision on whether to end key payments to insurance companies under Obamacare, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Sunday.

In an interview on "Fox News Sunday," the senior adviser said Trump's going to "make that decision next week" on cost sharing reduction payments — subsidies that Trump threatened Saturday to end in the wake of the collapse of a Senate GOP effort to repeal and replace Obamacare.

The administration's reluctance to say if they're going to make those payments have been blamed by Democrats for causing insurance companies to have less market certainty.

But Trump isn't willing to move on to other legislative priorities just yet, Conway said.

"The president will not accept those who said, ‘It's time to move on,'" Conway said.

Conway deflected a question on whether Trump plans to move Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whom he's publicly criticized, will be moved to the Department of Homeland Security as its head to succeed John Kelly, the newly named White House chief of staff.

It's a "personnel question only the president can answer," she said.
