Letter: 'Erratic' Trump isn't settling into office

With each passing day, it seems that President Donald Trump gets evermore erratic.

Constant tweets, often mean-spirited, fighting with people in his cabinet and the staff that he chose. Six months in and look at the turnover.

He keeps telling miners that coal will come back. I hope not, our planet can’t tolerate anymore assaults.

His behavior in Puerto Rico was incomprehensible. Basically telling these citizens to help themselves. What can they do when their country has seen such epic destruction? He went there and threw some paper to people. He tells people they need to fix their country — houses, roads, businesses – when it’s all in nothing but shambles. Plus, it’s a poor nation. They need aid, not chastisement.

His health care plan also is poorly thought out. Too many people will be left with little or no health care because they cannot afford it. And, as very wealthy people, he and his family have no understanding of what it means to be poor.
