President Trump on Saturday pushed back on allegations made by Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) about Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, the president's former pick to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs:

Previously, on Friday, Trump called Tester's actions an "absolute disgrace" and mused that Montana is not "going to put up with it."
