Trump reaffirms support for embattled VA nominee Ronny Jackson

Wednesday, 02 May, 2018

President Donald Trump nominated Jackson to head Veterans Affairs.

Jon Tester to resign over his opposition to White House physician Ronny Jackson's nomination for secretary of veterans affairs, saying some of the allegations against Jackson "are proving false".

Sean Conley, who took over the role as Trump's physician last month, will continue in the position.

Jackson, a former combat physician who faced criticism nearly immediately that he was not qualified to oversee VA, withdrew his nomination Thursday, after the office of Sen.

On Wednesday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Jackson's record was "impeccable", and said he had passed multiple background checks, including one conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Jackson has denied the allegations against him, which have proved hard to verify or disprove.

"Over the last 48 hours, media outlets have alleged that US Secret Service personnel were forced to intervene during a presidential foreign travel assignment in order to prevent disturbing (former) President Barack Obama". Either the allegations raised by Tester are true (or at least mostly true) or it was a smear job built out of greatly exaggerated, distorted accusations meant to tank another of Trump's nominees.

President Donald Trump's physician Doctor Ronny Jackson has been embroiled in a controversy after allegations that he had been lax with prescription drugs and drank alcohol on the job.

"I know things about Tester that I can say, too", Trump said later Saturday at a campaign-style rally in MI.

Members of Trump's administration are said to make decisions on nominees before properly vetting them, and will nix a candidate if they don't demonstrate their loyalty to the Commander-In-Chief.

Trump leveled his anger at Democratic congressional leaders Nancy Pelosi of California, and Chuck Schumer of NY as well as Michigan voters for sending Michigan Democratic Sen.

Parker went on to say he believes the Trump/Tester feud will lead to a big infusion of new out-of-state spending in Montana's Senate race, particularly on TV, both for and against Tester.

This latest fiasco opens Tester to criticism, leaves the VA in limbo (again) and Jackson remaining as White House physician, for now.

Jerry Hendrix, a retired Navy captain, was a top pick for national security adviser but had his candidacy rescinded after a past anti-Trump tweet surfaced, sources told the Post. Jackson reportedly attempted to intimidate the Vice President's doctor and was so angry about the encounter that he made the Pences' doctor feel "uncomfortable", according to CNN.
