  • Dr. Ronny Jackson will not return to his old role as personal physician to the president several media outlets reported Sund

Ronny L. Jackson, the Navy rear admiral whom President Trump unsuccessfully nominated to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, will not return to his previous role as the president's personal physician, a White House official said Sunday. The patient was Mike Pence's wife Karen Pence and the conflict started a heated debate between the Pences' doctor and Dr. Ronny Jackson.

White House sources who continue to defend Ronny Jackson say that the issues between the Pences' doctor and Dr. Jackson were simply a difference of opinion between two doctors.

Boland acknowledged that Tester's airing of allegations against Jackson may have complicated his path to re-election in November.

Following Adm. Jackson's announcement, Senator Jon Tester posted a message on Facebook reaffirming his commitment to "make sure the veterans of this nation get a strong, thoroughly vetted leader who will fight for them". Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., chairman of the committee considering Jackson's nomination. However, Trump's impulsive nomination of an unqualified sycophant (Jackson declared after Trump's physical that the president could live to be 200 with the right diet!), his cringe-worthy inability to quickly pull the nomination and his groundless smear of a senator who did his job - thereby protecting the president from a physician whose conduct is under serious scrutiny and protecting US veterans who deserve a competent and ethical VA chief - serve as ideal examples of why Trump is grossly unfit to serve. The doctor said the September incident was part of a pattern of "intimidating" behavior on Jackson's part that pushed him to consider resigning.

"Sen. Tester even admitted that he reviewed the Federal Bureau of Investigation files and there was no derogatory information in there about Jackson but he still spread malicious rumors", said a Trump administration official. The doctor said Jackson told him to "let things go ... if I am to succeed in my career".

And President Donald Trump has repeatedly come to Jackson's defense.

The Pences' physician wrote that Jackson used an "accusatory" and "unprofessional" tone that was "aggressive" at times. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) shared Pena's allegations with the media, including charges that Jackson created a hostile work environment, drank on the job, and improperly handed out prescription drugs, including the sleep aid Ambien for overseas trips.

Jackson has broadly denied the allegations of misbehavior. He was also accused of "excessive drinking on the job" and crashing a government vehicle. "She went up to the Hill and she spoke with approximately twenty-five Democrats... she's a holdover in the White House and didn't want Jackson to be nominated". In fact, the White House supported the plan backed by key Republicans and Democrats to outsource more routine veterans' care to private providers, but House Democrats balked at moving too quickly.

In a February University of Montana Big Sky poll, 41% of respondents said the President was doing a "poor" job.
