Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, M.D., today announced he has withdrawn his nomination as Secretary of Veterans Affairs amid allegations of improper conduct. "While I will forever be grateful for the trust and confidence President Trump has placed in me by giving me this opportunity, I am regretfully withdrawing my nomination to be Secretary for the Department of Veterans Affairs," Jackson said in a statement, noting that the allegations against him are “completely false and fabricated.” Jackson currently serves as the president’s physician and has served as a White House physician for the past three administrations. Robert Wilkie, undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness, continues to serve as acting VA secretary.
