Sonali reports on Obama's first 100 days

It's now 100 days since Barack Obama became the president of America back in January this year.

He's been pretty busy since taking office, travelling to other countries to meet world leaders, and trying to solve the global money problems.

Obama's election was historic, as he is the first black person to become president of the United States.

Now all that attention has moved to how good a job he is doing, and if the change he promised is really happening.

When he was trying to get elected as president Obama talked a great deal about how he would bring change to America.
