Trump Calls For Tester's Resignation Over Jackson Investigation

  • Sen. Jon Tester arrives for voting at the Capitol in Washington

White House physician Read Adm. Ronny Jackson, who withdrew his nomination to lead Veterans Affairs, will not return as President Trump's personal doctor, a report on Sunday said.

On Saturday, President Donald Trump defended Jackson in a pair of early morning tweets targeting the man who pushed the allegations, Sen.

Jackson withdrew his nomination Thursday.

If Tester's only motivation was to determine the content of Jackson's character so his fellow senators could make an informed decision, why didn't he confirm the accuracy of the charge with the Secret Service before he blasted it into the newsfeeds and nightly broadcasts of millions of Americans?

When he ran for president, candidate Donald Trump promised to hire "the best people" and said he would look at potential cabinet members' "track record, great confidence, love of what they're doing, how they get along with people, references".

Jackson has denied the allegations against him that recently made headlines. "If they had any merit, I would not have been selected, promoted and entrusted to serve in such a sensitive and important role as physician to three presidents over the past 12 years".

"I know things about Tester that I could say, too", Trump said. The White House says the records, covering recent years, disprove the allegations.

The White House had already taken issue with allegations against Jackson, saying Friday that internal records raise doubt about some of the most serious allegations leveled against Jackson.

Professor Verano said the children's skeletons contained lesions on their breastbones, which were probably made by a ceremonial knife.

The statement also noted Trump has signed into law eight of Tester's bills on veterans.

The president also accused Sen.

After the Secret Service statement, a source with direct knowledge of the incident told CNN there was a conversation between White House medical unit staff and the Secret Service at the time in which the Secret Service expressed concern about Jackson's behavior.

Democrat Barack Obama won the county twice in his White House runs, then Trump carried it by more than 11 percentage points. They included crashing a authorities vehicle whereas intoxicated at a Secret Service going-away social gathering and doling out such a big provide of a prescription opioid that staffers panicked as a result of they thought the medication have been lacking.

Jackson's coworkers, all active-duty or retired military, described him as "intolerable" as he gained power in the White House Medical Unit. CNN also reported the Secret Service stopped Jackson and that agents were anxious he might wake up President Obama. But there are reasons why, in addition to higher Cabinet turnover than his predecessors, President Trump is lagging behind past presidents in the number of people nominated and confirmed for Senate-confirmable positions.

President Trump praised him on Thursday at the announcement of the withdrawal of his appointment.

"I do not want to force a man to go through a process like this", he said on Tuesday, referring to the doctor's past investigations launched by the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs.
