White House not addressing reports on Jackson’s future

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says Dr. Ronny Jackson remains assigned to the White House — but it’s not addressing reports the Navy rear admiral won’t be returning to the job of President Donald Trump’s personal physician.

Jackson abandoned his nomination to be secretary of Veterans Affairs last week.

White House spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement that Jackson is still assigned to the White House, adding that there were “no personnel announcements at this time.”

Politico first reported Sunday that Jackson would not return to the role of personal physician to the president. Dr. Sean Conley, a Navy veteran, took the role of Trump’s personal physician after Jackson was nominated.

Jackson withdrew his nomination amid allegations that he drank on the job and overprescribed medication. Jackson has denied those allegations.
