A former Miami Dolphins cheerleader and her Florida state attorney husband are reportedly divorcing because of President Donald Trump.

It is being described as a "Trump Divorce," according to the press release issued by the cheerleader's PR firm, reports the Palm Beach Post.

The cheerleader, Lynn Aronberg, is described in the release as "a staunch Republican and supporter of President Donald Trump" who "said she felt increasingly isolated in the marriage."

Her husband, Dave Aronberg, the state attorney for Palm Beach County in Florida, is a Democrat.

"After much consideration over the past few months, we’ve decided to respectfully and amicably part ways and end our marriage," the couple is quoted as saying in the press release. "We are, however, dedicated to remaining close friends. We kindly ask for your supporting in preserving our privacy as we start to navigate this new chapter in our lives."

It then goes on to mention that "the former Lynn Lewis, who spun her old Dolphins gig into a successful PR firm, is receiving about $100,000 worth of benefits in exchange for her signature on the dotted line."

The benefits are summarized as follows: "The deal calls for [Dave], 46, to pay for half of Lynn’s rent in a luxury condo in tony Boca Raton until next summer. She’s also reportedly getting a brand new BMW and $40,000 cash."

The "successful PR firm" cited in the release is "Lynn Aronberg Public Relations," which she continues to run while serving as executive vice president of TransMedia, the PR firm that issued the press release.

But the Aronbergs aren't the only ones breaking up over Trump.

An April poll by the Wakefield Research found that 22 percent of Americans know a couple whose marriage or relationship "has been negatively impacted specifically due to President Trump’s election," reports Fox Business News.

The Wakefield poll also found that 24 percent of Americans in a relationship or married report that since Trump was elected, "they and their partner have disagreed or argued about politics more than ever."

The poll corroborates what New York-based divorce attorney Lois Brenner has been experiencing recently in her law practice.

"In my 35 years of matrimonial practice, I have never seen so many couples split over a political disagreement as with the Trump election," she told Fox. "The essence is: you must agree with me. Since I specialize in the psychology of divorce, this essence has its roots in narcissism, antisocial personality disorder and even obsessive compulsive disorder. I am frequently mediating these disputes between couples to help them draft a postnuptial or separation agreement."
