The White House is the Donald's house.

Angry protesters are pouring onto American's streets for a second night, enraged that Donald Trump will soon lead their country.

This comes after images were sent around the world of Mr Trump meeting President Obama at the White House - the reality that the handover has begun hitting home.

Mr Trump and Mr Obama - two bitter rivals, but now Mr Obama is prepared to share a top tip.

"Here's a good rule. Don't answer questions when they just start yelling at ya," he says.

While it was all progress and pleasantries on Pennsylvania Avenue, loud and passionate protests were breaking out at Trump HQ in midtown Manhattan.

There were also protests in Chicago, San Francisco, and other cities right across these Disunited States.

Believe it or not, Mr Obama and Mr Trump had never met before today's Oval Office meeting.

Foreign policy, domestic policy, and the White House handover were all on the agenda.

"The meeting lasted for almost an hour and a half and it, could have, as far as I'm concerned, it could have gone for a lot longer. We really, we discussed a lot of different situations, some wonderful and some difficulties," Mr Trump said.

"We now are going to want to do everything we can to help you succeed because if you succeed then the country succeeds," Mr Obama said.

But if you want to see the real reaction at the White House - just look at the faces on Mr Obama's staff.

A couple of hundred metres down the road, the discontent was a little more pronounced.

"I'm scared. I'm scared. You know I really wanted for my daughter to see a female president," one person said.

Even Newsweek is still coming to terms - recalling tens of thousands of Clinton president magazines it mistakenly sent out.

After the White House, Mr Trump was off to take a look around the Congress buildings.

Then, a catch up with Paul Ryan - the guy who called Mr Trump's vulgar comments about women "sickening".

Today though, the House Speaker had changed his tune.

"Donald Trump had one of the most impressive victories we have ever seen and we are going to turn that victory into progress for the American people," Mr Ryan said.

Taking a few minutes to admire the National Mall, Washington DC is a place Donald Trump is going to have to get used to.

It's going to take a lot longer it seems for America to get used to him.
