Donald Trump has been voted in as president of the United States, so now what? When does he get to move into the White House?
I wonder if everyone knows that Obama is still president until January

“Donald Trump will be inaugurated on January 20, 2017 as per the US constitution, where he will take the oath of office of the president of the United States” Amy Willis explains from Metro. “This will be on the steps of the US Capitol at noon, when President Barack Obama’s presidency will also expire. Meanwhile he will be known as president-elect and President Barack Obama will remain in the White House…”
Obama will not be able to do much during this time, so the presidency is in a transitional period until then.
