It's Friday, I'm Jenny, and you're live with CBBC.
Keep watching for all this.
As Donald Trump gets ready to be sworn in as the 45th
president of America, we hear what kids in
the US think of him.
Another round, another win for Murray in Australia.
And find out what's so special about these little guys.
Today, the US gets a new president - Donald Trump.
He's the billionaire businessman who promised he'd "make
America great again".
Well, now it's time for him to start his new job.
Leah is in Washington D.C in the States, and sent us this.
Well, welcome to Washington, DC, the capital of
Now, today really is a huge day for this country, as Donald
Trump prepares to move into there, that is the White House.
He will take on one of the most important jobs on the planet,
he will become the 45th president of United States, but before he
officially takes charge, he will have to attend a special
ceremony called an inauguration.
So what is an inauguration?
Well, luckily we've got you covered on that one, take a
look at this.
The president lives in the White House,
but the important bit today happens in the capital.
That's where Trump will be sworn in as
president and take an oath promising to do the best job he can.
Then he will make his speech called the inaugural address.
At the same time, movers will have a few hours
to move the Obama family's possessions out and move in Trump's.
After Trump's speech, Obama will then leave.
The party is over for him.
He should go out in style, though, with the past few presidents
leaving via helicopter.
Then it is lunchtime.
There's a feast that will include food from Trump's home
state, New York.
Lots of bagels and cheesecake, then.
Next up is the parade, this includes high
school bands, floats and soldiers.
It is probably nice to stretch your legs
after all that food and
In the evening, there's lots of balls hosted over the city.
The president tries to attend as many as possible.
It's a bit exhausting, but you only become
Or maybe twice.
So it's worth the effort.
Then it's time for a good night's sleep for the
first day in office for President Trump.
While Donald Trump has won the keys to the White House, the election
process has left many people deeply divided in this country.
Now, while Trump has his supporters, there
still are people that believe he isn't the right person
to lead this country, and across the weekend,
there will be protests here in Washington and across the country.
And even some politicians have decided to skip today's
So I met up with two kids here in Washington,
DC to find out why there's such a divide.
Hi, I'm Jack, I'm from Atlanta, Georgia and I'm
a Donald Trump supporter.
I'm from Washington DC, and I am not a Trump supporter.
Can you tell me how you feel about Donald Trump?
I'm excited for his presidency, I'm excited for his different view of
how our government works, and I'm excited
to have a new person in the
President Barack Obama was our first black president, it was bittersweet
seeing him go.
Donald Trump coming into office, I think, you know, I'm
going to have to get used to it.
Do you think Donald Trump has what it takes to unite America?
Can it be possible?
I think it can be possible.
As long as he, you know, watches what he says,
because some of the things he says, people can
take it wrong.
While he did win the election, there is a large proportion
of Democrats in our country who don't agree with him.
If we are going to bridge this divide, we need to be able to reach
out to the other party, work with them to solve our issues.
What would you say to him?
Follow-through on your campaign promises, because if you don't,
you won't be in office very long.
Because the people are expecting a lot from you.
Keep your promises, because it's a lot of doubts
If he doesn't go through with it, there will be lots
I hope our country can heal from this election and come
together to be one nation, not a divided nation.
And go online to watch my report on Donald Trump the man, and hear
from his supporters in Pennsylvania.
Remember, I'll be here live 4:20pm on CBBC,
with all the very latest from the inauguration as it happens.
Other news now, and Andy Murray has just got through to the fourth
round of the Australian Open with a win over
American Sam Querrey.
Murray won in straight sets, and will be hoping this might be
the year he finally wins the title.
He's reached the final five times before, but has lost each time.
Imagine if you had to find your way home after being
spun round and round.
Well, it's not a problem, if you're an ant!
Scientists have discovered that ants use the sun
to work out where they are, and have a good memory -
despite having a brain smaller than a pin head.
Researchers now hope to make mini robots that can find their way
around like ants do.
Finally to a rather strange turnip throwing festival in Spain.
Lots of people ran through a Spanish village, throwing turnips
at the colourful figure in fancy dress.
It's thought the festival is held because many years ago a thief
was once chased out of town by people throwing vegetables.
Don't try this yourselves, guys.
That's all from the teams in the US and the UK this morning,
Newsround's back at 4.20, when Leah will be live
from America with all the latest on Trump's inauguration.
All right, Cockers, I'm a little dog from Wigan.
# Oh, yeah!
Can you guess who that was an impression of?
Yeah, you're right, it was Hacker T Dog, of course.
But can you do a brilliant impression
of a CBBC character or presenter?
