Whitaker was campaign chairman for Mueller witness

To Mr Trump's great anger, on March 2, 2017, Mr Sessions recused himself from involvement in and oversight of the nascent Russia collusion investigation because of his own Russian contacts during the 2016 campaign. He has said that Hillary Clinton should have been prosecuted for her email scandal as secretary of state and that Trump made the right call in firing FBI Director James Comey.

Never in modern history has a president attacked a Cabinet member as frequently and harshly in public as Trump did Sessions, a former U.S. senator from Alabama and one of the first members of Congress to back Trump's presidential campaign in 2015.

There has also been a question mark over Mr Rosenstein's future since it was alleged that he had discussed invoking a constitutional clause to oust President Trump. Despite their House victory, Democrats still appear divided and Trump seems intent on driving a wedge in their ranks, repeatedly expressing his support for veteran Nancy Pelosi, 78, as the Speaker, even though the younger and more radical wing of the party want a younger, fresher face.

He wrote past year on CNN.com that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein should limit the scope of Mueller's investigation to stop him from delving into Trump's finances.

Asked whether Whitaker would assume control over Mueller's investigation, Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Flores said Whitaker would be "in charge of all matters under the purview of the Department of Justice".

A day after Attorney General Jeff Sessions' forced resignation, independent U.S. Sen. In an interview previous year with a conservative talk radio host, Whitaker said there was "no collusion" between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, a key question being examined by Mueller.

Several Republican senators, including the newly elected Mitt Romney, a former presidential candidate, said that the investigation led by Robert Mueller must be allowed to reach its conclusion.

MoveOn is also heading a petition asking legislatures to protect the investigation, which had reached more than 475,000 signatures as of Thursday evening.

Trump said at the news conference that he wanted the Mueller probe to end, calling it "very unfair".

Trump told associates that he felt that Whitaker would be "loyal" and would not have recused himself from the Russian Federation probe as Sessions had done, according to two Republicans close to the White House not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations.

But Trump's legal team and other lawyers representing witnesses in the investigation expect that the President's responses to Mueller could be one of the final pieces of the 18-month-long probe before the investigators present a report on their findings. Tuesday's outcome effectively kickstarted the 2020 Presidential campaign in a country that is on a perpetual election cycle.

An ever-more exasperated Trump ordered him to give up the mic and Acosta refused, with Trump branding him an "enemy of the people" and a "rude, bad person".

He bolstered the agenda of Trump's evangelical supporters with new rules letting employers opt out of providing health insurance that covers birth control and paving the way for religious businesses and employees to discriminate based on their closely held beliefs.
