After reading the Sept. 10 letter, "Reckoning on its way for Trump family," I thought the headline should’ve read, "Reckoning on its way for Biden family." The letter was a return to “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” with regurgitated narratives — and with President Joe Biden's poll numbers dropping.

Biden and his son Hunter Biden meet the qualifications better than Trump and his family for being scrutinized for their business activities, after it was proven that a suspect laptop does indeed belong to Hunter Biden.

Wow, four Republicans have filed articles of impeachment against Biden since he took office in January. And he still has more than three years left in his term. His record is not one of which to be proud.

I found it ironic that the letter said Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were displaying compassionate care in their handling of the coronavirus. Really? If they were really compassionate about COVID-19, they wouldn't be allowing millions of illegal immigrants into our country during a pandemic without requiring them to first receive a vaccine. Where is Harris?

Trump was responsible for Operation Warp Speed and the COVID-19 vaccine, which Americans can receive free of charge. For that they should be thankful.

Biden left hundreds of American citizens and billions of dollars worth of military equipment in Afghanistan due to his incompetence in the Afghan withdrawal. He authorized a drone strike that killed an Afghan family, including seven children, instead of terrorists who killed 13 of our military personnel and more than 100 Afghans in a suicide bombing at the Kabul airport. Why let the Taliban provide security around the airport?

President Biden is an embarrassment to our country and should be the one to spend the rest of his life in prison, wearing an orange jumpsuit, so he will no longer be able to damage our country.
