Jackson unlikely to return as Trump doctor

Jackson unlikely to return as Trump doctor

The Jackson episode dovetailed with Tester's prior campaign theme of fighting for veterans and an effective VA department, but clashed with his parallel message of working with Trump to get bills signed into law.

Jackson, the White House doctor and a Navy Admiral, withdrew his nomination to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs on Thursday amid allegations collected by Tester's office about his prescription-drug practices and use of alcohol.

The president lashed out at Tester on Saturday at a campaign-style rally in MI, saying, "I know things about Tester that I could say, too".

"This is a joke, and this was a political hit job of the highest order", Bongino said.

And in an earlier tweet, President Trump called for Senator Tester's resignation. The White House, however, responded Monday to say Jackson is now "assigned to the White House as Deputy Assistant to the President" and "Despite published reports, there are no personnel announcements at this time".

Trump recognized Jackson's lack of experience during a press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday.

Parker went on to say he believes the Trump/Tester feud will lead to a big infusion of new out-of-state spending in Montana's Senate race, particularly on TV, both for and against Tester. Pompeo was a highly qualified nominee of the Gorsuch mold, and still the White House had to exert muscle to wrangle Republican votes to push him over the hurdle. The President won Montana by 20 points, and Tester's is one of five Democratic-held seats in states that Trump won by double digits.

White House sources who continue to defend Ronny Jackson say that the issues between the Pences' doctor and Dr. Jackson were simply a difference of opinion between two doctors.

"Pardon the language, but I think it's bull butter", said independent voter Bill Boland about Trump's claim. A number of former Obama administration officials have also pushed back against the smear, along with the U.S. Secret Service, which shot down Tester's allegations. Their votes can not be underestimated.

The most interesting thing about this account is not the Democrats' suddenly intense interest in President Trump's personal health.

"Sen. Tester even admitted that he reviewed the Federal Bureau of Investigation files and there was no derogatory information in there about Jackson but he still spread malicious rumors", said a Trump administration official.

That's not exactly a denial because Jackson's title has not changed, at least not yet. But he's counting on a blue wave and voters turned off by the President being "more reflective on getting out to vote and saying this is important".
