Susan Collins, who has strongly opposed the legislation.

Many of the Republican senators who met with Trump Tuesday are hesitant to support the new plan, and sought answers from the president. In the Republican version, a last-minute tweak could lock out people who allowed their coverage to lapse, preventing them from buying insurance for at least six months.

Since the day Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell unveiled details of the bill last week, both Collins and fellow Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski seemed likely to fight against it.

The Kentucky Senator announced that he would be meeting with Trump to voice his objections to the GOP Senate health care bill Monday morning.
