U.S. President Donald Trump has named Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson as assistant to the president and chief medical adviser, the White House announced Saturday.

Last March, Trump nominated Jackson for the cabinet post before allegations of drinking on the job, improperly dispensing medication and creating a hostile work environment.

Jackson is best known for claiming that Trump could live for 200 years because of the president's "incredible genes" and for his nomination to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, despite having little to no applicable experience for the role.

Jackson's latest position was announced amid more than three dozen other White House appointments.

The Pentagon continues to investigate the allegations.

Especially when you throw Keanu Reeves , Jordan Peele , Keegan-Michael Key, and Tony Hale (as a freaked-out fork) into the mix. Obviously, it has certainly helped that the last three Toy Story movies have all been exceptional in their own rights.

Dr. Sean Conley, a Navy commander, succeeded Jackson as physician to the President.

The rear admiral, who also served as a White House physician under the former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, has denied all of the allegations leveled against him, calling them "completely false and fabricated".

The White House also resubmitted Jackson's name for a promotion for a second star on Friday.

The President's physical exam previous year sparked controversy after Jackson, who was then the White House physician, told reporters Trump was in "excellent health" despite revealing that Trump is borderline obese and has a common form of heart disease.
