The 2016 election left many families divided. For many people, the election, which saw business tycoon Donald Trump ascend to the nation's highest office, signaled a further decline of democratic ideals.

By 2020, as Trump embraced conspiracy theories about the integrity of the 2020 election—a development many analysts had predicted would happen years prior—those concerns metastisized.

And by January 6, 2021, the day a mob of Trump's supporters stormed the United States Capitol on the false premise the election had been stolen, many had reached their breaking point, including supporters of the ex-President. Oh, and we haven't even touched the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic or the Trump administration's response (or lack thereof).

Trump is more than just a leader for a particular faction within the Republican Party. He is dogma. And after some Trump supporters decided to walk back their support, things got interesting.

People shared their stories with us after Redditor rickandtwocrows asked the online community,

"Former Trump supporters, what were your experiences when you stopped being a Trump supporter?"

People Break Down The Differences Between Biden's First Year In Office And Trump's

At the start of Donald Trump's presidency, protests raged in response to a ban he ordered via executive order to seven Muslim-majority countries. At the start of Joe Biden's presidency, the nation was still reeling from the Capitol riot, which had happened just two weeks prior.

The country is currently in a remarkably divided time and political bonds have frayed further, charged with anger.

But the real question here is how did these two men do?

Tom Brady Makes Shady Dig At Trump's Election Lies During White House Super Bowl Event

Earlier this week, President Joe Biden invited the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl win earlier this year. The tradition would normally have been relatively uneventful in a year like 2021, except for some comments made by Tom Brady.

Brady was an obsession for former President Donald Trump. Seeing the athlete visit Biden in the White House is speculated to be a personal nightmare for the former President.

However Trump felt about the visit, it's sure to be worse when Brady made this joke:

Brady also made fun of the bad nicknames Trump tends to come up with.

President Biden praised the team for their win and called the team an example that it's "never too late to come together and achieve extraordinary things." He also used the opportunity to recommend people get vaccinated.

The whole situation struck the internet funny.

The Buc's visit marks the first time a Super Bowl champion team has visited the White House since 2017. The Patriots won, with Brady's help at the time, though the athlete himself skipped the tradition.

This likely upset Trump, seeing as the former president used to use his Twitter account to defend Brady while he was caught in a scandal over using deflated footballs.

However, not all of Brady's history is so easily forgotten, including a "Make America Great Again" hat he had in his locker in 2016.

This is the first NFL visit by Super Bowl champions since 2017.

In 2018, the Philadelphia Eagles were uninvited by Trump due to protest during the National Anthem. In 2019, The Patriots won again, but chose not to go, though they confirmed it had nothing to do with politics.

And of course, the 2020 winners, The Kansas City Chiefs skipped due to the pandemic.

Head coach of the Bucs, Bruce Arians said it was an honor to be invited to the White House and hopes the political divide in Washington can be overcome for the American people.

Trump Mocked for Losing $40 Million on Scottish Golf Clubs for the Stupidest Reason

Despite years of efforts to brand himself as a business genius, former President Donald Trump's business practices paint a different picture under scrutiny.

Whether it's his numerous failed business ventures or the shady claims in his financial documents, Trump's dealings have landed him millions of dollars in debt and there's reason to believe some of them operated outside the law.

Among Trump's properties, his two resorts in Scotland have proven to be the most financially unstable, with neither turning a profit since they opened.

The resorts, Turnberry near Glasgow and Trump Golf Links International in Aberdeenshire, are "dependent on loans from Trump and US-owned entities to stay afloat," according to Business Insider. The UK's Companies House records indicate the properties are £113,425,000 (around $160 million) and £44,400,049 (around $63 million) respectively.

But, according to the Companies House reports, the loans were created in British Pound Sterling and issued interest-free. Compared to the U.S. dollar, the pound's value has plummeted since Trump issued the loans. As a result, when those loans are paid out in dollars, Trump will receive significantly less than what he originally doled out—tens of millions of dollars less in fact.

Business Insider spoke to investment analyst Stephen Clapham, who said Trump's loss results from his failure to hedge his investments:

"Hedging is what every business does unless there's a specific reason you can't do it - for example, you're investing in ... somewhere where the capital markets aren't developed enough to allow you to hedge the currency ... The most likely explanation is that Trump has made this loan and incurred a significant loss."

Trump's purported business acumen once again saw skepticism.

Others speculated the loss was part of a money laundering scheme, though there's no evidence now to support that claim.

Either way, it doesn't look good for Trump.
