I'd say that's divisive within society on the subject.
Not at all. it was all his personal agenda against mutants.
That president's declaration - much like a lot of things happening in X2, like Wolverine finding out his origin and who he was - was about to happen for more than two hours but it never did in the end. Therefore, society never got to react to it.
