Hi, I'm Martin and this is Newsround.
First, America is waking up today to a new president - Donald Trump.
The billionaire businessman and former reality TV star has
taken charge of the US, after a huge inauguration
Leah was there in the Capitol, Washington.
This is the moment Donald Trump officially became the 45th president
of the United States.
I, Donald John Trump, do solemnly swear that
I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States.
In his speech afterwards he told the crowds that he
would put America first.
I will fight for you with every breath in my body and I will never,
ever let you down.
The ceremony was also timed to say goodbye to outgoing
President Barack Obama who flew out in a helicopter.
Thousands of people came to watch Trump's inauguration.
Since he's going to be running our country,
I want to help support him and just come see him.
It was pretty exciting because this is the moment
that only certain people see.
He can't really do anything too terrible so I'm interested
to see what he does.
It's an historical moment so I'm happy to be here.
We have a new president now.
Not everyone here is celebrating Donald Trump.
These people are protesting outside his new hotel in Washington, DC.
They are unhappy and they don't think he's the right
man to run the country.
There are more protests that are expected here, too.
I really have no idea how he will run this country.
So far it doesn't seem like he's been doing the best kind of job.
I hope that he doesn't, like, pick fights with other
countries and start a war.
Try not to mess America up that much in four years.
Then it was time for the big parade.
And now, for the first time, the new president of America,
Mr Donald Trump, is here along the parade route, greeting people
for the very first time.
He's our new President, I can't do anything about it so...
I feel like he's a great businessman and I feel he will do a great
job as our president.
I feel the same way.
I think he's going to do a lot of things.
I think he'll do great.
So, as Donald Trump wakes up to his first morning in the White House,
the country will be waiting to see if he can live up to his promises.
And on his first day as president, Donald Trump will be waking up
to thousands of women marching as part of a big campaign to raise
awareness for gender equality and women's rights.
This is because protestors think their rights could be under
threat from the new president, Donald Trump, after rude comments
he has made about women in the past.
Marches are taking place in 32 different countries
with the biggest in Washington DC, the capital of America.
If you want any more info on the inauguration or Donald Trump
himself then head online for Leah's reports from the US.
Next to some kids who are winning big in the sport of jiujitsu.
For this family, it all started when their mum took them
to a Saturday class and they fell in love with the sport.
My name is Nia.
These guys are the Junior World Champions in their age group.
Jujitsu is important to me because I get to see new people
and make new friends.
It helps me express myself, really, like fighting and it's a good way
to relax after a long day at school.
I like travelling around the world and winning competitions.
Jujitsu is a martial art which combines the grappling
of judo with the kicking and punching of karate and boxing.
Opponents punch and kick each other to score points.
And the person with the most points, wins.
There are lots of different types of jujitsu, including Brazilian
style, which these guys do.
Which doesn't involve kicking.
I think I'm good at jujitsu because I put my heart and soul into it.
I train as much as I possibly can.
I am really good at jujitsu because I have been
practising for four years.
I like beating the boys in it because it gets them really annoyed.
It helps me to just to look after myself when there is a bully
who is trying to hurt me.
Since I enjoyed it, I kept on doing it and then somehow I turned out
to be this champion, travelling around the world.
What's it like competing with your brothers and sisters?
Doing sport with Zuri and Amar is so much fun because we have
like something in common, like when we go to bed or we go home
we can just talk about jujitsu and our new moves and stuff.
What does the future hold for these guys?
I want to go like all the way, I want to be like an adult champion,
like have my own jujitsu school when I'm older
and have all the little kids.
When I'm older I want to run my own jujitsu school and be a doctor
or I might be really rich and be a paediatrician.
That's all from me, I'm back with your Sunday Newsround tomorrow.
Catch us just after 10.

No, that doesn't really work.
Why did the Blue Peter presenter cross the road?
