People have been divided for a long time; however, it seems that the strain has further aggravated under Trump's administration. It is not plausible to declare that Trump himself caused this division; rather, it is the manner how differently people intercept policies enforced under Trump's tenure that contributes to the ever-worsening divide. Trump's subordinates in the Executive Branch, members of the Congress, and the Judiciary all have something to do under the current administration.
I reckon that a divide has been there as early as the caucuses took place and as early as the campaign trails of each presidential candidate commenced. With regards to Trump's victory over other presidential candidates, two points of view towards the future of the USA— the positive and the negative— emerged. I had heard of some Americans intending to immigrate to neighboring Canada upon Trump's victory, and, frankly, to non-Americans, that was absurd. I doubt if they actually committed themselves to that decision.
The divide is not limited to American citizens and nationals. This divide extends to foreign populations, particularly, its eminence among foreign political leaders. Travel bans enforced into law under Trump, despite its benefit to the USA's end, had instigated protests overseas, as well as the withdrawal from global pacts such as the Paris Accord.

No, quite the opposite actually. Whether you like him or dislike him, you'd have to be blind not to see that he widened the chasm between Republicans and Democrats and even created a divide within the Republican party itself.
