According to two senior administration officials, White House physician Ronny Jackson will not return to his role as Trump’s personal physician. This comes after he withdrew his secretary of Veterans Affairs nomination after multiple allegations emerged.
Jackson will be permanently replaced by Sean Conley, a Navy officer who filled in for Jackson last month.
After the allegations emerged, the White House and Trump continued to defend Jackson.
The allegations range from drinking on the job, handing out prescription pills and multiple drunken occasions. This includes an incident where he allegedly crashed a government vehicle and tried to enter a female staffer’s hotel room.

Jackson has denied the allegations.
When Jackson withdrew his nomination, the White House stated that he would continue to work at the White House Medical Unit.
Trump also took to Twitter to attack Sen. John Tester (D-Mont.), the ranking Democrat on the Veterans Affair committee, calling for Tester’s resignation. Trump also attacked Tester during his rally on Saturday.
The White House has yet to comment.
This is a developing story.
