ALBAWABA - Since discovering some top-secret documents in a private office for U.S. President Joe Biden, supporters of ex-President Donald Trump decried the timid public reaction toward the purported lawbreaking of the serving American president.

The pro-Trump camp complained about the enraged public reaction to the news about the Federal Bureau of Investigation's discovery of classified documents at the former president's Mar-a-Lago mansion in Florida, compared with the timid and almost muted reaction towards Biden.

According to CNN, Biden took the classified documents when he was working as a vice president to Barak Obama, between 2009 and 2017. Ten documents were found, including U.S. intelligence memos and briefing materials that covered topics such as Ukraine, Iran and the United Kingdom.

A comparison between the quantity and the type of classified documents found inside the private properties of both presidents was made. CNN said that under 12 documents were caught in Biden's private office with some top-secret materials. However, Trump had more than 160 secret documents, with 60 among them being top-secret.

However, some Americans insisted that both cases differed. Besides the limited number of documents, Biden's classified documents were found in a think-tank office, while those in Trump's possession were nabbed from the ex-president's private residence.
