The limit is two four-year terms of office. The rule was not officially in place, but each President at the time abided by this rule. President Franklin D. Roosevelt was the exception where he served a total of four terms in office. The 22nd Amendment was then adopted after World War II which restricts a sitting President to only two four-year terms of office.
