Mohamed, software developers are very tribal creatures. Try not to be bothered. When I was trying to decide which JavaScript framework to pick up (I came from .NET/C#) I built a currency converter in React and then Vue. When I compared the development experience, the answer was Vue hands down. I don't think that you're obligated to provide a reasoning when someone asks you which one you prefer. The purpose of JavaScript frameworks is to increase developer productivity. I am more productive in Vue and I am in React. I've tried both before picking one and I actually wanted to be more productive in React because it was the 'cooler option'.

Simply stated, if you have MVC experience - Vue will feel more natural. If you have more experience with functional programming, React might be more your speed. If you prefer TS over JS, maybe you're better off with React until Vue 3 is a bit more mature. If you like JSX, use React. If you don't want to learn new syntax and just want to push how to prototype quickly, try Vue. I wouldn't say that one is better than the other unless you're referring to a very specific use case.

I personally prefer Vue although I would build a project in React for work, Vue is my go-to at the moment.

Vue also just surpassed react with stars on GitHub.
