Attorney General William Barr resigned Monday and said he will leave office Dec. 23.

On Monday, Barr visited the White House, where President Donald Trump said the attorney general submitted his resignation letter.

"As per letter, Bill will be leaving just before Christmas to spend the holidays with his family," Trump tweeted.

In Barr's letter, he said he had updated the president on the allegations of voter fraud in the November election and how his department would continue to pursue the allegations.

Trump said Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen will become acting attorney general. The president called Rosen "an outstanding person."

Barr also served as attorney general under President George H.W. Bush.
