President Trump To Make Major Announcement Today

President Trump on Monday afternoon is expected to announce his intentions to shrink at least two national monuments in Utah.

Trump will visit Salt Lake City to detail plans to shrink the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments.

Trump earlier this year ordered the Interior Department to consider 27 large national monuments including Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante for modification or elimination. Secretary Ryan Zinke has proposed shrinking some monuments, including the 1.3-million-acre Bears Ears, but not eliminating any of them.

Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch (R) said in October that Trump had committed to reducing Bears Ears, a monument designated by former President Obama in his final month in the Oval Office.
