. Various outlets reported the news, including USA Today and Rooters.

According to reports, Trump announced that Acosta himself made the decision to resign. He also called Acosta's presence in the cabinet a "distraction," and announced that Acosta's deputy, Pat Pizzella, would become acting secretary. The resignation is expected next week.

Democrats demanded Acosta's resignation earlier this week following Epstein's arrest on sex trafficking charges. Even so, an earlier case arguably should have brought the new charges to light. An investigation was dropped as part of a plea deal agreed to by Acosta, then U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida. Some investigations have suggested Acosta helped craft the deal.

In an impromptu presser Friday morning, Trump and Acosta addressed news hounds about the resignation. Acosta confirmed reports, but he also chided the press for covering the Epstein scandal without referencing the impressive jobs numbers under President Trump and under his own watch at the Department of Labor.

"I do not think it is right and fair for this administration's labor department to have Epstein as the focus rather than the incredible economy that we have today," Acosta said. So he called Trump and "told him that I thought the right thing was to step aside. Because cabinet positions are temporary trusts. It would be selfish for me to stay in this position and continue talking about a case that's twelve years old rather than about the amazing economy we have right now."

The resignation is effective one week from today.
