It's Friday, I'm Jenny, and you're live with CBBC.

0:00:040:00:07

Keep watching for all this.

0:00:070:00:10

As Donald Trump gets ready to be sworn in as the 45th

0:00:100:00:13

president of America, we hear what kids in

0:00:130:00:15

the US think of him.

0:00:150:00:18

Another round, another win for Murray in Australia.

0:00:180:00:22

And find out what's so special about these little guys.

0:00:220:00:26

Today, the US gets a new president - Donald Trump.

0:00:370:00:40

He's the billionaire businessman who promised he'd "make

0:00:400:00:42

America great again".

0:00:420:00:43

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

0:00:430:00:45

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

0:00:450:00:48

Hello, everyone.

0:00:480:00:49

Well, welcome to Washington, DC, the capital of

0:00:490:00:51

America.

0:00:510:00:53

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

0:00:530:00:57

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

0:00:570:01:00

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

0:01:000:01:03

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

0:01:030:01:06

officially takes charge, he will have to attend a special

0:01:060:01:10

ceremony called an inauguration.

0:01:100:01:12

So what is an inauguration?

0:01:120:01:14

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

0:01:140:01:17

look at this.

0:01:170:01:18

The president lives in the White House,

0:01:180:01:20

but the important bit today happens in the capital.

0:01:200:01:23

That's where Trump will be sworn in as

0:01:230:01:25

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

0:01:250:01:29

Then he will make his speech called the inaugural address.

0:01:290:01:33

At the same time, movers will have a few hours

0:01:330:01:36

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

0:01:360:01:40

After Trump's speech, Obama will then leave.

0:01:400:01:43

The party is over for him.

0:01:430:01:45

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

0:01:450:01:48

leaving via helicopter.

0:01:480:01:51

Then it is lunchtime.

0:01:510:01:52

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

0:01:520:01:55

state, New York.

0:01:550:01:56

Lots of bagels and cheesecake, then.

0:01:560:01:58

Yum, yum.

0:01:580:02:00

Next up is the parade, this includes high

0:02:000:02:03

school bands, floats and soldiers.

0:02:030:02:05

It is probably nice to stretch your legs

0:02:050:02:09

after all that food and

0:02:090:02:11

talking.

0:02:110:02:11

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

0:02:110:02:15

The president tries to attend as many as possible.

0:02:150:02:18

It's a bit exhausting, but you only become

0:02:180:02:19

president once.

0:02:190:02:22

Or maybe twice.

0:02:220:02:23

So it's worth the effort.

0:02:230:02:24

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

0:02:240:02:27

first day in office for President Trump.

0:02:270:02:31

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

0:02:310:02:34

process has left many people deeply divided in this country.

0:02:340:02:37

Now, while Trump has his supporters, there

0:02:370:02:40

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

0:02:400:02:42

to lead this country, and across the weekend,

0:02:420:02:45

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

0:02:450:02:48

And even some politicians have decided to skip today's

0:02:480:02:51

inauguration.

0:02:510:02:54

So I met up with two kids here in Washington,

0:02:540:02:56

DC to find out why there's such a divide.

0:02:560:03:00

Hi, I'm Jack, I'm from Atlanta, Georgia and I'm

0:03:000:03:02

a Donald Trump supporter.

0:03:020:03:04

I'm from Washington DC, and I am not a Trump supporter.

0:03:040:03:11

Can you tell me how you feel about Donald Trump?

0:03:150:03:17

I'm excited for his presidency, I'm excited for his different view of

0:03:170:03:21

how our government works, and I'm excited

0:03:210:03:25

to have a new person in the

0:03:250:03:26

White House.

0:03:260:03:27

President Barack Obama was our first black president, it was bittersweet

0:03:270:03:30

seeing him go.

0:03:300:03:32

Donald Trump coming into office, I think, you know, I'm

0:03:320:03:36

going to have to get used to it.

0:03:360:03:38

Do you think Donald Trump has what it takes to unite America?

0:03:380:03:41

Can it be possible?

0:03:410:03:43

I think it can be possible.

0:03:430:03:45

As long as he, you know, watches what he says,

0:03:450:03:49

because some of the things he says, people can

0:03:490:03:52

take it wrong.

0:03:520:03:53

While he did win the election, there is a large proportion

0:03:530:03:56

of Democrats in our country who don't agree with him.

0:03:560:03:58

If we are going to bridge this divide, we need to be able to reach

0:03:580:04:02

out to the other party, work with them to solve our issues.

0:04:020:04:07

What would you say to him?

0:04:070:04:09

Follow-through on your campaign promises, because if you don't,

0:04:090:04:12

you won't be in office very long.

0:04:120:04:15

Because the people are expecting a lot from you.

0:04:150:04:17

Keep your promises, because it's a lot of doubts

0:04:170:04:19

people have.

0:04:190:04:21

If he doesn't go through with it, there will be lots

0:04:210:04:23

of problems.

0:04:230:04:25

I hope our country can heal from this election and come

0:04:250:04:29

together to be one nation, not a divided nation.

0:04:290:04:32

And go online to watch my report on Donald Trump the man, and hear

0:04:320:04:36

from his supporters in Pennsylvania.

0:04:360:04:38

Remember, I'll be here live 4:20pm on CBBC,

0:04:380:04:42

with all the very latest from the inauguration as it happens.

0:04:420:04:47

Thanks, Leah.

0:04:470:04:48

Other news now, and Andy Murray has just got through to the fourth

0:04:480:04:51

round of the Australian Open with a win over

0:04:510:04:53

American Sam Querrey.

0:04:530:04:55

Murray won in straight sets, and will be hoping this might be

0:04:550:04:58

the year he finally wins the title.

0:04:580:05:01

He's reached the final five times before, but has lost each time.

0:05:010:05:06

Imagine if you had to find your way home after being

0:05:060:05:08

spun round and round.

0:05:080:05:10

Well, it's not a problem, if you're an ant!

0:05:100:05:13

Scientists have discovered that ants use the sun

0:05:130:05:15

to work out where they are, and have a good memory -

0:05:150:05:19

despite having a brain smaller than a pin head.

0:05:190:05:21

Researchers now hope to make mini robots that can find their way

0:05:210:05:24

around like ants do.

0:05:240:05:27

Finally to a rather strange turnip throwing festival in Spain.

0:05:270:05:32

Lots of people ran through a Spanish village, throwing turnips

0:05:320:05:34

at the colourful figure in fancy dress.

0:05:340:05:37

It's thought the festival is held because many years ago a thief

0:05:370:05:40

was once chased out of town by people throwing vegetables.

0:05:400:05:44

Don't try this yourselves, guys.

0:05:440:05:47

That's all from the teams in the US and the UK this morning,

0:05:470:05:50

Newsround's back at 4.20, when Leah will be live

0:05:500:05:52

from America with all the latest on Trump's inauguration.

0:05:520:05:57

All right, Cockers, I'm a little dog from Wigan.

0:06:050:06:07

# Oh, yeah!

0:06:070:06:09

Can you guess who that was an impression of?

0:06:090:06:11

Yeah, you're right, it was Hacker T Dog, of course.

0:06:110:06:13

But can you do a brilliant impression

0:06:130:06:15

of a CBBC character or presenter?
