Dr. Ronny Jackson Will Not Return to His Job as Trump’s Personal Physician

In wake of the allegations that tanked his nomination to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, Dr. Ronny Jackson will reportedly not be returning to his role as President Donald Trump‘s personal physician.

Earlier this week, CNN reported that Jackson had returned to the White House medical office in some capacity but had not returned to his previous role attending to POTUS.

A Politico report out on Sunday confirmed CNN’s reporting, and citing two senior officials, noted: “Jackson will not return to his role as the president’s personal physician.”

Jackson’s nomination was tanked after a series of salacious allegations about his behavior on duty surfaced. He has denied the allegations and will remain on the White House medical staff.

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

Trump also praised Jackson during his rally Saturday night and threatened to spill the beans on Tester in order to tank his upcoming election as payback for what he did to his nominee.
