"Trump wants you to focus on Sessions, Clinton, and Scaramucci this week," Murphy tweeted, referring to the president's new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci.

"You need to focus on health care, health care, and health care."

Trump earlier on Monday questioned why investigators aren't looking into Clinton.

"So why aren't the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?" Trump asked in a tweet.

His tweet comes amid multiple investigations into Russian election meddling and whether Trump campaign aides colluded with the Russians.

In an earlier tweet, Trump quoted Senate Minority Leader Charles SchumerCharles (Chuck) Ellis SchumerDemocrats slam Trump for considering Putin’s ’absurd’ request to question Americans Judge Kavanaugh confounds the left This week: GOP mulls vote on ‘abolish ICE’ legislation MORE (D-N.Y.), who said that Democrats should blame themselves for their election loss, not Russia interference.

Senate Republicans plan to vote this week on revised healthcare legislation. But the legislation faces a number of serious issues and appears headed for failure.

Earlier this month, Murphy said that repealing ObamaCare without a replacement would be a "humanitarian disaster of incomprehensible scale."
