Well, now it's time for him to start his new job.

:00:19.:00:23.

Leah is in Washington D.C in the States, and sent us this.

:00:24.:00:27.

Well, welcome to Washington, DC, the capital of

:00:28.:00:30.

Now, today really is a huge day for this country, as Donald

:00:31.:00:35.

Trump prepares to move into there, that is the White House.

:00:36.:00:39.

He will take on one of the most important jobs on the planet,

:00:40.:00:42.

he will become the 45th president of United States, but before he

:00:43.:00:45.

officially takes charge, he will have to attend a special

:00:46.:00:48.

Well, luckily we've got you covered on that one, take a

:00:49.:00:55.

The president lives in the White House,

:00:56.:00:58.

but the important bit today happens in the capital.

:00:59.:01:02.

That's where Trump will be sworn in as

:01:03.:01:04.

president and take an oath promising to do the best job he can.

:01:05.:01:08.

Then he will make his speech called the inaugural address.

:01:09.:01:12.

At the same time, movers will have a few hours

:01:13.:01:15.

to move the Obama family's possessions out and move in Trump's.

:01:16.:01:19.

After Trump's speech, Obama will then leave.

:01:20.:01:21.

He should go out in style, though, with the past few presidents

:01:22.:01:27.

There's a feast that will include food from Trump's home

:01:28.:01:33.

In the evening, there's lots of balls hosted over the city.

:01:49.:01:54.

The president tries to attend as many as possible.

:01:55.:01:57.

It's a bit exhausting, but you only become

:01:58.:01:59.

Then it's time for a good night's sleep for the

:02:00.:02:06.

first day in office for President Trump.

:02:07.:02:09.

While Donald Trump has won the keys to the White House, the election

:02:10.:02:12.

process has left many people deeply divided in this country.

:02:13.:02:16.

Now, while Trump has his supporters, there

:02:17.:02:19.

still are people that believe he isn't the right person

:02:20.:02:21.

to lead this country, and across the weekend,

:02:22.:02:24.

there will be protests here in Washington and across the country.
