President Donald Trump has appointed Ronald Jackson as chief physician and assistant to the President on Saturday.
Jackson, the former president's doctor and his nominee, who was to head the Department of Veterans Affairs before he was repealed for alleged abuses, was nominated on Friday for promotion to a two-star admiral in the Navy.

The double announcements came before Trump's annual exercises, scheduled for Friday, February 8, at Walter Reed.
Jackson was called to the VA position in April 2018, but retired after allegations returned from overly-prescriptive pills and drank at work and creating an enemy work environment. Jackson, who also served as President of the White House under President George W. Bush and Barack Obama, denied the allegations and called them "completely wrong and fabricated."
The Washington Post confirmed on Saturday that Jackson is still being led by Investigations by the Inspector General of the Department of Defense.
Jackson also made headlines last year after chairing the president's physical president when he reported that Trump was in "excellent" condition with "big genes," even though the rapporteurs pointed out that the seven-day President does not exercise regularly and does not eat healthy.
Also on the list of assistants to the president is Stephanie Grisham, press secretary to First Lady Melania Trump, who was previously Deputy Assistant to the President. Grisham, who is often militant in the defense of the First Lady, wrote a column of views at CNN in December 1945 defending the First Lady against "trivial and superficial" press coverage.
