I'm Ricky with your top stories.
Fist up, he's divided opinion, caused huge controversy,
and shocked the world by winning the election to become US President.
On Friday, Donald Trump will officially take charge of America.
Leah's travelled to Trump's home City of New York
to find out who he is, and what kids there think of him.
Donald Trump is determined.
I'm going to build a wall and Mexico's going to pay for it.

Donald Trump talks like this...
Welcome to New York, the city that never sleeps.
This is where Donald Trump was born, grew up and made a name for himself.
But, despite that, many New Yorkers are not big fans.
Donald Trump is a joke.
I've never said I was a perfect person, nor pretended to be
someone that I'm not.
Donald Trump is not my president.
So, just who is Donald Trump then?
Well, for starters, he grew up in this exclusive,
well-off area of Queens, in this very house.
He lived with his mum and dad, Mary and Fred Trump,
and two brothers and two sisters.
At school, he liked baseball and misbehaved, but from a young age
he always had big ambitions to be rich and powerful.
These kids have big ambitions in life too.
Like Trump, they are growing up in Queens, but life
for them is very different.
I feel ashamed that I'm from Queens now, because this type
of man grew up here, while I grew up in a whole other way
because I was raised to be respectful to people.
It's ridiculous to think that we're going to be led by
this man who's so closed-minded.
At the same time, it is kind of unsettling that we have a big
billionaire buffoon that is going to be our president.
His attitude, I think, does tick people off,
and I think it'll get in the way of what he wants to do for America.
All I can say is you have to be hopeful because maybe, you never
know, he could do something good.
Donald Trump really made a name for himself up here -
that's Trump Tower.
Now, after taking over his dad's company, he became known
for being a billionaire businessman and a reality TV star...
..not for being a politician.
Good morning, America.
Trump's unexpected rise to the White House is the top story
on America's biggest morning news show.
He doesn't talk like a politician and he's been able to plough his way
through it because he says, look, I am not politically correct,
and I'm not a politician, and I think to people watching him,
those who like him, that is deeply appealing.
His entire persona circles very much around being successful -
I am a winner, I am a success, I am a self-made man, and so on.
We have the best pizza in the world in Staten Island.
And those are the qualities that appeal to these schoolkids
in the area of Staten Island.
When I was younger, me and my mum used to watch
the Celebrity Apprentice all the time, and I realised
the firmness in his talk and how he always wanted to get things done.
I personally feel that he'll do quite well,
especially on the economy.
He is very aggressive in how he speaks.
It's just his way of expressing how he feels.
A lot of people don't express it that way -
that's why they are not familiar and that's why
they don't like it that much.
He wants to protect us by making sure that we have a border.
The President of the United States of America is one of the most
important jobs in the world.
Now, some people say Donald Trump isn't the right leader for America,
while others say it's time for a new kind of politician.
Now millions of Americans, and people all over the world,
will be waiting to find out what happens next.
Some tennis now and Britain's Dan Evans has pulled off
the biggest win of his career, by beating Marin Cilic
at the Australian Open.
Dan struggled early in the match but managed to turn it
around against Cilic.
He's now into the third round of the grand slam.
Andy Murray is also through but gave fans a scare
when he rolled his ankle.
He says its not too serious though.
That's all from me but don't forget if you've been hearing words
like Brexit and single market all over the news then head online
where I've been trying to break down what they mean for you.
Newsround's back tomorrow with Martin.
