WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump’s physician Ronny Jackson will not withdraw as the nominee to head the Veterans Affairs department and will fight allegations about his conduct that surfaced ahead of a Senate confirmation hearing, a White House official said on Tuesday.
Jackson met with Trump on Tuesday after the president said he was leaving the decision up to the physician. The White House is now preparing a defense, feeling that Jackson – well liked by administration figures from both parties – was being railroaded.
According to the article, the official, was speaking on condition of anonymity. The official reportedly said: “We’re pushing back.”
Pres. Donald J Trump said Tuesday that it was Jackson’s choice to continue to seek the nomination, or walk away.
JUST IN: Trump says he’d “stand behind” VA Sec. nominee Ronny Jackson if he sought to continue the nomination process amid scrutiny over his conduct.
“If I were him…I wouldn’t do it. I really don’t think, personally, he should do it.” – President Trumppic.twitter.com/1UhO52oFDm
