Former US Attorney General Jeff Sessions
Last year Sessions recused himself from overseeing the Mueller probe, which has been a constant source of anger from the president.
Whitaker will now oversee the investigation of interference from Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential elections as well as possible collusion with the campaign of President Trump, a controversial probe headed by former FBI chief Robert Mueller.
West Wing sources said they are "worried" about Trump Jr as they fear Mueller will be able to snare him on perjury.
During an interview with CNN, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, "I don't see it's a constitutional crisis just yet".
Republicans warned Trump a year ago against replacing Sessions, but some of that resistance appeared to break down by late August, when several key GOP senators signaled to Trump that he could find a new attorney general after the midterm elections.
Whitaker's selection by Trump as acting attorney general drew sharp criticism from Democratic lawmakers, who described it as an attempt by the president to undermine and possibly end Mueller's investigation.
Sessions took himself out of decision-making on the probe in March 2017 even after Trump dispatched the White House lawyer to persuade him not to do so, according to a person familiar with the matter.
"We don't have a king or a junta or a dictator, do we?" said Arlington Heights rally organizer Jerry Freda.
Mueller is reportedly writing his final report on his investigation that's cast a cloud over the Trump administration.
"The whole issue of presidential harassment is interesting", McConnell told reporters, when asked what Senate Republicans would do if Democrats attempted to obtain Trump's tax return.
White House Revokes Press Pass Of CNN's Jim Acosta
During the news conference, Trump sparred with White House correspondents when they posed questions he did not like. Acosta held onto it, and raised his arm to stop the aide from taking it, in the process making contact with her.
In a related development, a federal appeals court on Friday ordered Mueller to explain how the DOJ leadership shakeup would affect an ongoing lawsuit over the special counsel's authority.
DONALD TRUMP JR: Could the US President's son be the biggest scalp claimed by Robert Mueller? "Once woken, we will never go back to sleep and we intend to be out here flooding the streets to protect the Mueller investigation and our democracy from the Russians".
This week's shakeup at the Department of Justice could affect the outcome of a subpoena challenge that an associate of Trump ally Roger Stone is waging against special counsel Robert Mueller.
The AP reported that the resignation "was the culmination of a toxic relationship" between Sessions and Trump based on a few factors, but largely Session's having recused himself from dealing with Mueller's probe.
Clovis and Whitaker are friends.
The president said that he "did not know" Mr Whitaker and that he had not talked to him about the Mueller probe before his appointment.
Trump responded by repeatedly seeking to publicly humiliate Sessions.
Trump has crossed a red line - and we're mobilizing.
Trump's selection of Whitaker as acting AG (Sessions had recused himself from oversight of the Mueller investigation) drew immediate fire, as Whitaker has already established himself as a highly partisan Trump loyalist. During that time, Mueller secured indictments or guilty pleas from more than 30 people, including Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn - all steps that were taken with Rosenstein's approval.
