Trump Calls for Sen. Tester's Resignation Over VA Nominee Saga
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 Washington Post said that Jackson will remain on the staff of the White House medical unit, but the New York Timesreported that it was unclear if he would remain on staff or retire from the military.
On Thursday, Trump's physician Ronny Jackson withdrew from consideration to head the department after allegations that he had been lax with prescription drugs and drank alcohol on the job.
The records also say the White House medical unit Jackson ran successfully passed regular controlled substance audits.
Trump tweeted early Saturday that the allegations "are proving false". The president later called for Tester to resign for what he said are allegations that remain unconfirmed.
The White House has pushed back on Politico's report but declined to clarify Jackson's role.
"Senator Tester is perhaps the most vulnerable Democratic Senator in the 208 election", said McHammond. "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". "A frightful thing that we in D.C. must live with, just like phony Russian Collusion". Tester should lose race in Montana'.
No doubt the VA establishment considers Jackson's withdrawal a victory. "Very dishonest and sick!" "I said in a certain way.in a very big way, you're an American hero because you're exposed the system for some terrible things", he said.
Israel cancels expulsions of African migrants
Uganda recently backtracked on a deal with Israel to absorb several thousand migrants following days of negotiations in Kampala. Israel is still conducting what it calls "voluntary" deportations, though in reality there is nothing voluntary about them.
Tester is up for re-election in November, in a state Trump won handily in 2016.
Records were also pulled of three vehicle incidents involving Jackson over the last four years.
"He would have been a great leader", Trump said of Jackson. In a tweet, the president declared the allegations against Jackson "not true".
He released a statement calling the allegations against him false and fabricated.
Trump named Jackson to replace David Shulkin, the former VA secretary, in March after the department's inspector general released a report faulting Shulkin for a trip he took to Europe previous year with his wife, whose travel expenses were paid by taxpayer funds.
