The majority of Americans learn from an early age that their presidents are constitutionally limited to serve two terms.

But the news came as a shock to one four-year-old girl who burst into tears when she discovered President Obama would soon be leaving office.

Abella Tomlin, from Beaverton, Oregon, was told the news by her mother, who had been listening to speeches at the Democratic National Convention in the car.

With the waterworks well and truly open, Abella Tomlin asked her mom Andrea if she could watch a movie as it ‘would make me feel better’.

The little girl wailed ‘I miss Obama,’ when her mother asked her why she was so sad.

Andrea explained: ‘Abella has been an Obama fan since day one. She has grown up with him as a hero in our household, and as such has always talked about how much she loves him.

‘I was just listening to the DNC speeches, and she asked me what they were talking about.

‘So I explained to her that the country is getting ready to elect a new president.

‘She immediately had tears running down her face and explained to me that Barack Obama was our president and how could we get a new one when we already had one.’

In a bid to console her devastated daughter, Andrea asked Abella whether she thought Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton would make a good President.

After replying she thought so, she doubled down and admitted she would still miss President Obama.

Andrea added: ‘After the video ended, Abella asked if we could ‘just pretend that Obama would still be the president’ and could he please have dinner with us.

‘I don’t allow her to see anything about Trump.

‘I find him to be unpredictable and inappropriate for most, and definitely for my kids.

‘I don’t want her to see a grown man making fun of people or using hate speech.

Andrea explained: 'Abella has been an Obama fan since day one. She has grown up with him as a hero in our household.'

‘She’s not at an age where I can teach her the details about why he does that and why it is inappropriate.

‘If we can’t have Obama, then Hillary is the one for us.’

President Obama will leave office on January 20 2017, when the 45th president is inaugurated.

He will be replaced by either the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton or the Republican pick Donald Trump, who are battling it out to be elected on November 8.
