President Donald Trump said he can never support "bailing out insurance companies who have made a fortune with Obamacare."

His comments came in the form of a tweet after Sens. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Patty Murray, D-Wash., worked out a deal to shore up Obamacare insurance markets.

The two senators announced on Tuesday that they put together a two-year extension of subsidies for insurance companies to low-income clients after Trump had canceled them last week, USA Today reported.

"This agreement avoids chaos," Alexander said. "Over the next two years, I think, Americans won't have to worry about the price of health (insurance) and being able to buy insurance in the counties where they live."

The Hill noted Trump has sent mixed signals on whether he supported the deal by Alexander and Murray.

At one point on Tuesday he called it "a short-term solution so that we don't have this very dangerous little period" for insurance companies.

But later that day he said: I continue to believe Congress must find a solution to the Obamacare mess instead of providing bailouts to insurance companies."
