Author and conservative commentator Ann Coulter says President Trump is not focusing on the priorities he had as a candidate -- illegal immigration and jobs -- and is following GOP establishment and Speaker Paul Ryan's "corporatist" priorities.
"They seem to be Paul Ryan’s priorities," she said about what Trump was doing, "and also just the standard GOP corporatist stuff."
"What made Donald Trump stand apart from the crowd... from the crowd from every presidential candidate for 20 years was immigration, trade, infrastructure, building a wall. Obviously, that was very, very popular. A lot of people haven't been listened to all this time."
"Look, I like tax cuts. I'd love to have my taxes cut - 50 percent of people don’t even pay taxes. I think the bigger problem now is jobs. And I will not hold the Emperor-God Trump responsible for this Obamacare-lite bill, but, oh for Pete's sake. Am I the last person in America who understands the free market?"
"Sean Spicer was very good today explaining to idiot reporters, getting mandated coverage doesn't mean insurance companies won't cover it. It means Ann won’t be required to pay for 15 services more like 50 services that I have no interest in," she continued.
"They’re all talking about Congress is going to give us these things. Congress can give us nothing. The free market can give us things. And they are coming up with the premiums? Who would be better to come up with the premiums — someone whose business it is that needs to come up with a good premium to compete to get my business, and who has disease specialists and actuarial specialists or politicians in Washington?" she added.
