White House Doctor Ronny Jackson was nominated to run for the head of the Department of Veterans Affairs, a move that left many puzzled and angry, and others supporting his decision. The nomination for the spot was announced earlier this week.
Despite the many calls of bowing out of the nomination, including both Senators and Congressmen citing his behavior in his current job and his task management skills as reasons for him to bow out. So far, he announced that he will still be seeking the job.
In a private meeting this Tuesday with President Donald Trump, Jackson and Trump exchanged thoughts and plans on what to do next. Reportedly, Jackson said he denied all allegations against him and said he will continue to run for it. Trump agreed to the decision.
