Trump Calls For Top Democrat To Resign, The Reason Will Have You Echoing The Same

Earlier this week, President Trump’s pick to head the Veterans Affairs Administration was forced to withdraw his name from consideration.

The reason? A few Democrat lawmakers started spreading rumors of false workplace incidents concerning the nominee.

So, Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson, who also serves as the White House physician, bowed out from the nomination to ease any grievances which could be made of the administration.

Now that truth is beginning to expose those rumors, Trump is calling for the man who headed the lies to resign, Democrat Senator Jon Tester.

“Allegations made by Senator Jon Tester against Admiral/Doctor Ron Jackson are proving false,” Trump said in a pair of tweets. “The Secret Service is unable to confirm (in fact they deny) any of the phony Democrat charges which have absolutely devastated the wonderful Jackson family. Tester should resign.”

And, “The great people of Montana will not stand for this kind of slander when talking of a great human being. Admiral Jackson is the kind of man that those in Montana would most respect and admire, and now, for no reason whatsoever, his reputation has been shattered. Not fair, Tester!”

Per Fox News:

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. Among the allegations, Jackson was accused of getting drunk and wrecking a government vehicle after a Secret Service going-away party.

Tester, the top Democrat on the Republican-controlled Senate Veteran Affairs Committee, is seeking a third Senate term this year in a state Trump won in 2016 with 56 percent of the vote.

On Friday, the White House pushed back again the allegations, saying records, including police reports, show Jackson was in three minor vehicle incidents in government vehicles during the last five years, but none involved the use of alcohol and he was not found to be at fault.


In one case, a side-view mirror was clipped by a passing truck, while in another incident an enraged driver in Montgomery County, Maryland, allegedly punched out Jackson’s window during a morning drive to Camp David.

In addition, the White House medical unit Jackson ran found that he successfully passed regular controlled substance audits, according to the records for the last three years. The reviews did recommend improvements to the medical unit’s handling of controlled substances but did not find misconduct.

The Associated Press reviewed the documents Friday. They were the result of an internal White House review of allegations raised against Jackson during his brief confirmation process. The White House said the records, covering recent years, disprove the allegations.

Tester’s office has not specified the time frame during which the alleged misconduct occurred. The senator’s spokeswoman Marnee Banks said the office would not comment until it knew more about the White House records.

During a press conference on Friday, Trump said the situation concerning Jackson was “an absolute disgrace.”

“These were false accusations about a great man; about a man who has a son who’s a top student at Annapolis; about a man that’s given his life to this country, and to the military — a brave man. He would have been a great leader,” Trump also said.

Some people who responded to the president quickly agreed that Tester should be held accountable:
