Hello, Jenny here with all the top stories this Thursday.

0:00:100:00:13

Let's get started.

0:00:130:00:15

There's just one day until this man, Donald Trump, officially takes

0:00:150:00:19

over as the President of the United States,

0:00:190:00:21

after winning the American election in November.

0:00:210:00:24

Leah's travelled to Freeland in the state of Pennsylvania,

0:00:240:00:27

which voted for Trump, to find out what kids

0:00:270:00:30

there like about their new leader, and what they hope he'll do.

0:00:300:00:35

This is a foggy Freeland.

0:00:350:00:38

It's a borough in Pennsylvania, home to just a few thousand people.

0:00:380:00:43

Most people in this area chose Donald Trump

0:00:430:00:46

to be their next president.

0:00:460:00:49

And most pupils at this school are Trump fans.

0:00:490:00:54

There's even a student Trump impressionist on hand

0:00:540:00:58

to kick-start the day.

0:00:580:01:00

Good morning.

0:01:000:01:01

This is your President, Donald J Trump.

0:01:010:01:04

Today's lunch is sloppy Joes with side salad.

0:01:040:01:09

Have a good day, God bless and make America great again.

0:01:090:01:13

So why has Trump made such a big impression here?

0:01:130:01:18

I like Donald Trump because I think he's done a lot as a businessman

0:01:180:01:22

and he can do a good amount of things for our country.

0:01:220:01:25

Coal is a big part of Pennsylvania and the North East.

0:01:250:01:28

I guess people like him because he promised

0:01:280:01:32

that he was going to keep those jobs going.

0:01:320:01:35

I like that he is a family guy, because, being, like,

0:01:350:01:39

a politician and, like, having a family is hard to do.

0:01:390:01:42

I hope that maybe he could bring jobs back, because there are so many

0:01:420:01:46

people now who are losing jobs and it's very sad to see people's

0:01:460:01:50

jobs go, like, to other countries.

0:01:500:01:52

Not everyone is a Trump fan, though.

0:01:520:01:55

I don't like Donald Trump because I don't think

0:01:550:01:57

he has enough experience.

0:01:570:01:58

He's really, like, a loudmouth.

0:01:580:02:00

He's not the nicest of people.

0:02:000:02:03

But, at the same time, apart from that,

0:02:030:02:05

you know what he's thinking.

0:02:050:02:06

A nervous feeling.

0:02:060:02:07

You don't know what he's going to do next.

0:02:070:02:10

While Trump came out on top in the election He goes

0:02:100:02:13

into the White House as the most unpopular president in decades.

0:02:130:02:18

He's got into trouble about comments he's made about women,

0:02:180:02:21

using words like "pig, fat or ugly".

0:02:210:02:25

And he's attacked different groups of people, too,

0:02:250:02:27

like Muslims or Mexicans.

0:02:270:02:29

Some people say he's not the right person

0:02:290:02:31

to lead the country because

0:02:310:02:33

he has a habit of lashing out at people he disagrees with.

0:02:330:02:37

He just did all this for attention

0:02:370:02:41

so that once he is inaugurated, he'll settle down a little bit.

0:02:410:02:47

I feel he's like everybody - some people have good days and bad days

0:02:470:02:51

but he's in the spotlight, so his bad days are worse than ours and his

0:02:510:02:57

good days are better than ours.

0:02:570:03:00

I feel if Donald Trump can bring those

0:03:000:03:01

jobs, then all of our towns will be better places.

0:03:010:03:06

I hope that he just makes our country a better country

0:03:060:03:10

and helps stuff go up for our country.

0:03:100:03:16

Next, to the coldest place on planet earth, Antarctica.

0:03:160:03:19

This huge crack has developed in the ice

0:03:190:03:21

there and it's causing some real problems for

0:03:210:03:23

scientists in the area.

0:03:230:03:25

Ayshah has this one.

0:03:250:03:28

It goes on for miles.

0:03:280:03:30

This huge crack deep into the ice has been captured

0:03:300:03:33

by a drone in Antarctica.

0:03:330:03:37

The crack is in an area called the Floating Brunt Ice Shelf,

0:03:370:03:40

and just ten miles from the crack, British scientists are based

0:03:400:03:42

at the Halley Research Station, which is made up of big,

0:03:420:03:46

blue pods, with a big red pod in the middle.

0:03:460:03:49

They've made the decision to move their base,

0:03:490:03:51

because they don't know what will happen to the ice shelf

0:03:510:03:54

in the next few months.

0:03:540:03:56

Luckily the pods are designed to move, with the legs

0:03:560:03:58

fitted onto big skis.

0:03:580:04:01

The next few months are important because the Antarctic winter will be

0:04:010:04:04

starting, and the area will be pitch black for months.

0:04:040:04:07

It also means that it'll be difficult to evacuate people

0:04:070:04:10

from the area in the winter conditions, where temperatures get

0:04:100:04:13

as low as -55 Celsius.

0:04:130:04:17

We've taken the prudent decision that, in the light of this

0:04:170:04:19

new crack, it would be better and the safest thing to do to close

0:04:190:04:23

the station in a controlled way and bring our team home,

0:04:230:04:26

because their safety is paramount to us.

0:04:260:04:29

The British Antarctic Survey also say that cracks in ice

0:04:290:04:32

shelves aren't unusual, but this new crack is growing.

0:04:320:04:36

They plan to go back to the area in November to carry on their work

0:04:360:04:40

when it's summertime again there.

0:04:400:04:41

And until then, they will monitor the crack.

0:04:410:04:47

That's all from the team today.

0:04:470:04:48

I'm back at 7.40am tomorrow morning with all the day's top stories,

0:04:480:04:53

so set your alarms.

0:04:530:04:55

Bye.
