#ObamaAndKids hashtag takes over social media

Activist Michael Skolnik's started a Twitter movement this weekend after sharing an image of President Obama greeting three-year-old Clark Reynolds at an event celebrating Black History month.

Along with the image, snapped by White House photographer Pete Souza, Skolnik wrote: "We'll never truly be able to measure the impact that President Barack Obama has had on our children."

Skolnik's then encouraged others to share their favourite pictures of Obama with his youngest constituents using the hashtag #ObamaAndKids.

Even First Lady, Michelle Obama, got in on the action sharing an image of Obama with his daughters Malia and Sasha.

President Obama is nearing the end of his second term with US presidential elections due to take place in November 2016.
