Hello, welcome to a rainy Washington DC.

:00:14.:00:16.

Leah here, coming to you live from America's capital city.

:00:17.:00:27.

Today is the day that Donald Trump becomes the US President -

:00:28.:00:30.

the man who promises to "make America great again".

:00:31.:00:41.

Just to be a bit overblown, it is very busy here. The helicopters

:00:42.:00:48.

buzzing around and military trucks blocking the road to the White

:00:49.:00:54.

House. That is just behind me. We saw some police cars speeding by, we

:00:55.:00:59.

think the President elect and Barack Obama were in those cars. It has

:01:00.:01:02.

been busy for Donald Trump already, he has enjoyed a copy with Iraq

:01:03.:01:09.

Obama already. Any next half hour he will be sworn in as the next

:01:10.:01:13.

President of America. It will be a busy day for him.

:01:14.:01:16.

Here's a quick rundown of what's in store for him.

:01:17.:01:18.

The president lives in the White House,

:01:19.:01:20.

but the important bit today happens in the capital.

:01:21.:01:22.

That's where Trump will be sworn in as

:01:23.:01:24.

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

:01:25.:01:27.

Then he will make his speech called the inaugural address.

:01:28.:01:30.

At the same time, movers will have a few hours

:01:31.:01:32.

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

:01:33.:01:36.

After Trump's speech, Obama will then leave.

:01:37.:01:39.

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

:01:40.:01:44.

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

:01:45.:01:55.

Next up is the parade, this includes high

:01:56.:02:00.

It is probably nice to stretch your legs

:02:01.:02:03.

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

:02:04.:02:07.

The President tries to attend as many as possible.

:02:08.:02:10.

It's a bit exhausting, but you only become

:02:11.:02:12.

first day in office for President Trump.
