President Trump is straying from the platform that put him in the Oval Office, rendering his administration like any other Republican White House, Ann Coulter said Tuesday.

During a radio interview for the "Sean Hannity Show," the conservative pundit rebuked House GOP leaders’ measure to repeal and replace ObamaCare and slammed the president for backing it, urging him to stick to the issues that helped him win the election.

“Trump has got to get off this stuff and get off tax cuts and get back on the stuff that got him elected,” Coulter said Tuesday.

“This is starting to look like every other Republican administration,” she added. “We want more jobs, a wall and lots of deportations.”

Coulter was among Trump’s earliest and most ardent supporters during his presidential campaign, but has been anything but reserved in her attacks on the American Health Care Act (AHCA) championed by House Speaker Paul RyanPaul Davis RyanDemocrat Katie Porter unseats GOP's Mimi Walters Amazon fleeced New York, Virginia with HQ2 picks The Hill's Morning Report — Presented by T-Mobile — House, Senate leaders named as Pelosi lobbies for support to be Speaker MORE (R-Wis.) to replace the Affordable Care Act.

Some congressional conservatives have rejected the legislation outright, arguing that it does not go far enough to dismantle the provisions of ObamaCare. Those concerns prompted House Republican leaders to release a slew of changes to the plan late Monday, in an attempt to rally conservative support.

But Coulter remains unconvinced. She railed against the measure on Hannity’s show and unleashed a flurry of tweets condemning the bill and accusing Trump of veering from his campaign trail promises.

“OTOH, Trump numbers dropping is significant. Trump got elected for wall, deportations & trade. Instead he's doing tax cuts & Obamacare Lite,” she tweeted, using an abbreviation for the phrase, “on the other hand.”

“Ryancare not only destroys any chance of reform, but guarantees single payer & demoralizes us with more politicians who can't keep promises,” she wrote in another post, using a name critics have given to the AHCA.
