Good afternoon.

0:00:110:00:12

I'm Ricky with your top stories.

0:00:120:00:15

Fist up, he's divided opinion, caused huge controversy,

0:00:150:00:18

and shocked the world by winning the election to become US President.

0:00:180:00:22

On Friday, Donald Trump will officially take charge of America.

0:00:220:00:25

Leah's travelled to Trump's home City of New York

0:00:250:00:28

to find out who he is, and what kids there think of him.

0:00:280:00:35

Donald Trump is determined.

0:00:350:00:36

I'm going to build a wall and Mexico's going to pay for it.

0:00:360:00:39

Donald Trump is going to make America great again.

0:00:390:00:42

God bless you!

0:00:420:00:43

Donald Trump talks like this...

0:00:430:00:49

Welcome to New York, the city that never sleeps.

0:00:490:00:52

This is where Donald Trump was born, grew up and made a name for himself.

0:00:520:00:59

But, despite that, many New Yorkers are not big fans.

0:00:590:01:04

Donald Trump is a joke.

0:01:040:01:05

I've never said I was a perfect person, nor pretended to be

0:01:050:01:08

someone that I'm not.

0:01:080:01:10

Donald Trump is not my president.

0:01:100:01:14

So, just who is Donald Trump then?

0:01:140:01:17

Well, for starters, he grew up in this exclusive,

0:01:170:01:19

well-off area of Queens, in this very house.

0:01:190:01:24

He lived with his mum and dad, Mary and Fred Trump,

0:01:240:01:27

and two brothers and two sisters.

0:01:270:01:31

At school, he liked baseball and misbehaved, but from a young age

0:01:310:01:34

he always had big ambitions to be rich and powerful.

0:01:340:01:40

These kids have big ambitions in life too.

0:01:400:01:44

Like Trump, they are growing up in Queens, but life

0:01:440:01:46

for them is very different.

0:01:460:01:50

I feel ashamed that I'm from Queens now, because this type

0:01:500:01:53

of man grew up here, while I grew up in a whole other way

0:01:530:01:56

because I was raised to be respectful to people.

0:01:560:01:59

It's ridiculous to think that we're going to be led by

0:01:590:02:02

this man who's so closed-minded.

0:02:020:02:04

At the same time, it is kind of unsettling that we have a big

0:02:040:02:08

billionaire buffoon that is going to be our president.

0:02:080:02:11

His attitude, I think, does tick people off,

0:02:110:02:14

and I think it'll get in the way of what he wants to do for America.

0:02:140:02:17

All I can say is you have to be hopeful because maybe, you never

0:02:170:02:21

know, he could do something good.

0:02:210:02:26

Donald Trump really made a name for himself up here -

0:02:260:02:28

that's Trump Tower.

0:02:280:02:31

Now, after taking over his dad's company, he became known

0:02:310:02:35

for being a billionaire businessman and a reality TV star...

0:02:350:02:37

You're fired.

0:02:370:02:39

..not for being a politician.

0:02:390:02:42

Good morning, America.

0:02:420:02:45

Trump's unexpected rise to the White House is the top story

0:02:450:02:47

on America's biggest morning news show.

0:02:470:02:50

He doesn't talk like a politician and he's been able to plough his way

0:02:500:02:53

through it because he says, look, I am not politically correct,

0:02:530:02:56

and I'm not a politician, and I think to people watching him,

0:02:560:03:01

those who like him, that is deeply appealing.

0:03:010:03:05

His entire persona circles very much around being successful -

0:03:050:03:07

I am a winner, I am a success, I am a self-made man, and so on.

0:03:070:03:11

We have the best pizza in the world in Staten Island.

0:03:110:03:14

And those are the qualities that appeal to these schoolkids

0:03:140:03:16

in the area of Staten Island.

0:03:160:03:20

When I was younger, me and my mum used to watch

0:03:200:03:23

the Celebrity Apprentice all the time, and I realised

0:03:230:03:25

the firmness in his talk and how he always wanted to get things done.

0:03:250:03:29

I personally feel that he'll do quite well,

0:03:290:03:31

especially on the economy.

0:03:310:03:32

He is very aggressive in how he speaks.

0:03:320:03:35

It's just his way of expressing how he feels.

0:03:350:03:38

A lot of people don't express it that way -

0:03:380:03:40

that's why they are not familiar and that's why

0:03:400:03:42

they don't like it that much.

0:03:420:03:44

He wants to protect us by making sure that we have a border.

0:03:440:03:51

The President of the United States of America is one of the most

0:03:510:03:55

important jobs in the world.

0:03:550:03:58

Now, some people say Donald Trump isn't the right leader for America,

0:03:580:04:01

while others say it's time for a new kind of politician.

0:04:010:04:07

Now millions of Americans, and people all over the world,

0:04:070:04:09

will be waiting to find out what happens next.

0:04:090:04:18

Some tennis now and Britain's Dan Evans has pulled off

0:04:180:04:20

the biggest win of his career, by beating Marin Cilic

0:04:200:04:23

at the Australian Open.

0:04:230:04:25

Dan struggled early in the match but managed to turn it

0:04:250:04:28

around against Cilic.

0:04:280:04:30

He's now into the third round of the grand slam.

0:04:300:04:32

Andy Murray is also through but gave fans a scare

0:04:320:04:35

when he rolled his ankle.

0:04:350:04:36

He says its not too serious though.

0:04:360:04:40

That's all from me but don't forget if you've been hearing words

0:04:400:04:43

like Brexit and single market all over the news then head online

0:04:430:04:46

where I've been trying to break down what they mean for you.

0:04:460:04:51

Newsround's back tomorrow with Martin.

0:04:510:04:53

Bye.
