By what process can the President prevent the Treasury from paying out subsidy checks to commercial insurers as provided in the ACA?

"My little Trump" - Is Frank referring to Donald Trump during Nazi report?
In Season 6 Episode 7 of Shameless, Chuckle Slott was giving a report on Nazis. After the report, Frank Gallagher says: Thats my little Trump . Capitalized?

Why are insurers dropping out of the ACA exchange?
According to Kaiser Family Foundation (as of Aug 4, 2017) 17 counties are at risk of having no insurers for the ACA exchange for 2018.
For background/context: That would impact 9,600 current enrollees. The distribution is: 14 Counties in Nevada, 1 in Ohio, 1 in Indiana and 1 in Wisconsin. Of those 17 counties, 9 had only one insurer and 5 had two insurers in 2017.
In absence of any competition why wouldn't insurers be clamoring to fill the void, potentially making them the one and only insurer?
Some "experts" maintain that, in the absence of competition (i.e. only one insurer in the county) insurers can demand exorbitant premiums (because the treasury is paying the bulk of the premium), while other "experts" maintain that premiums are controlled as a function of claims history for that given demographic of the county.
In either case, why wouldn't an insurer be delighted to have a local monopoly in the exchange for a given county? I realize that it looks like a question like this has already been asked, however this question is addressing why rather than what happens. UPDATED (9/3/17) Kaiser Family Foundation now reports that insurers for ALL counties have been secured for the 2018 .gov exchange
