THE LONGEST U.S. PRESIDENTIAL
TERM POSSIBLE

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What is the longest an U.S. president can serve?

The longest serving president was Franklin Delano Roosevelt who served 4 terms and a total of 12 years 1 month and 8 days as the president of the United States.

On March 21, 1947 America passed the twenty-second amendment (Amendment XXII) to the United States Constitution and it was ratified by the requisite number of states on February 26, 1951 which limited the term any one person can serve as President.

The amendment read:

Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

Section 2. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years from the date of its submission to the States by the Congress.

To sum it up, the longest any one person can serve as President of the United States is 10 years, although no one has served longer than 2 terms since Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
