President Donald Trump and Congress are "exactly on track" with a shared agenda for new administration's first 200 days in office, according to House Speaker Paul Ryan.

In an interview airing Thursday night on Fox News' "Hannity," the Wisconsin GOP lawmaker said the Oval Office and Capitol Hill are "working on the same plan."

"What I did during the transition with my counterpart in the Senate, [Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell, is we put together a 200-day plan for the president to get this agenda that we all have agreed on, through the system," Ryan said.

"And we are exactly on track and on our timeline with our agenda."

For example, a repeal and replacement of Obamacare is moving forward, he said.

"The plan . . . is repeal and replace this law like we said," Ryan said. "We ran on a plan to repeal and replace. [Health and Human Services Secretary] Tom Price helped write that plan."

Ryan also asserted the new president has been a welcome change for conservatives who could not accomplish their legislative goals under President Barack Obama.

"He likes getting stuff done, and I love that about him," Ryan said.

"We've been waiting for this for a long time. Those of who have been conservatives pent up here fighting the Obama administration, the progressive left, he is a conservative, and he is ready to take on these challenges, so that is what I'm excited about. He moves so fast that people are scrambling to catch up."
