Ronny Jackson Will Not Return as Trump's Physician

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

Ronny Jackson, who withdrew last week as the nominee for secretary of Veterans Affairs, will not return to his role as the president's chief physician, according to Politico and other outlets.

Speaking at a rally in MI, the president spoke out about Tester, telling the crowd he knew things that could damage the Democrat, although he did not go into details about the information.

But debating Jackson's qualifications in committee and Tester's short-circuiting the process with his McCarthy-like smear campaign are two different things.

"Tester started throwing out things that he's heard", Trump said at a rally in Washington Township, Michigan, on Saturday night. Over footage of Dede chatting with Tester, he says, "Jon Tester's work in Washington helped me get my life back".

Trump on Saturday tweeted that Tester is "very dishonest and sick" and should lose the race.

Some names being tossed around for the VA spot now that Dr. Ronny Jackson has withdrawn are: Ascension President and CEO Anthony Tersigni, Cleveland Clinic CEO Dr. Toby Cosgrove, Rep. Phil Roe (R-Tenn.), and former Rep. Jeff Miller (R-Fla.). He called Jackson "the kind of man that those in Montana would most respect and admire, and now, for no reason whatsoever, his reputation has been shattered. Not fair, Tester!" he added. So I'm not just going to go, 'Well, it's alleged, and I am hearing that this guy did all of these awful things, and x, y, and z, ' because I have no idea if it's true or not.
