Ronny Jackson not to return to job as Trump's personal doctor

Trump calls on Senator to resign over opposing VA nominee

Democratic Sen. Jon Tester's office collected the allegations. Tester's office collected the allegations, which included a claim that Jackson "got drunk and wrecked a government vehicle" at a Secret Service going-away party.

As it stands now, he remains White House doctor, but his professional reputation has been damaged.

Tester was one of a group of Senate Democrats who published a list of concerns about Jackson's appointment to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs.

"The Secret Service is unable to confirm (in fact they deny) any of the phony Democrat charges which have absolutely devastated the wonderful Jackson family", Trump wrote on Twitter. In his rather lengthy rant on Fox & Friends, the president said, "I watch what Jon Tester, of Montana - a state that I won by, like, over 20 points". "A frightful thing that we in D.C. must live with, just like phony Russian Collusion".

The press was the target of the president's ire Saturday night far less than it was past year - when he skipped the same Washington, D.C., event and held a campaign rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Jackson and the president insist the allegations are false, but, in the end, neither was willing to fight them.

Jackson's personnel assessments address the toxic work environment issue, but charges that he mixed work with alcohol and was loose with controlled substances need more explanation from the White House.

More news: Drop Off Unwanted Prescription Drugs Saturday, No Questions Asked

We don't know whether any of the accusations that derailed Dr. Ronny Jackson's nomination as Veterans Affairs secretary are true.

This week, Jackson withdrew his name from nomination for Veterans Affairs Secretary amid the allegations. Isakson earlier had referred to as the allegations "severe" in his determination to postpone Jackson's Wednesday listening to.

Jackson had already faced tough questions from several committee Republicans about whether he had the experience to manage the massive VA. They were the result of an internal White House review of allegations raised against Jackson during his brief confirmation process. Democrats also say he he "wrecked" a auto after drinking at a Secret Service going-away party.

CNN previously spoke to multiple current and former employees at the White House medical unit who described a "grab and go" culture that allowed staffers to get prescription drugs without a medical examination. White House officials said he would return to the White House Medical Unit.

TRUMP: "We've done a great job with our vets". "We come up again on September 28 and if we don't get border security, we'll have no choice". The Choice wasn't good enough ... We're getting Alternative, which is an enormous deal.

Note to the White House: Getting nominees through the Senate is not going to get easier, so up your game.

In a press release this month, White Home spokesman Hogan Gidley emphasised that Trump had nothing to do with Alternative not being authorized.
