LEVELLAND, Texas -

The White House announced Saturday President Trump has appointed Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, from Levelland, TX as his Chief Medical Adviser.

The appointment comes less than a year after Jackson withdrew from consideration as Trump's nominee for secretary of Veterans Affairs over allegations that he was "abusive" toward colleagues, loosely handled prescription pain medications and was periodically intoxicated.

Jackson has denied all of the allegations leveled against him, calling them "completely false and fabricated."

He remains under Pentagon investigation over allegations of improper behavior.
