With a pen and a phone call, President Donald J. Trump reduced the size of two Democrat-Era land grabs in Utah by half. The reduction in size of the Grand Staircase-Escalante (created by Bill Clinton) and the Bears Ears (created by Barack Obama) national monuments is the first time in half a century that a federal protected area has been scaled down.
“Some people think that the natural resources of Utah should be controlled by a small handful of very distant bureaucrats located in Washington. And guess what? They’re wrong,” Trump said in the state capitol alongside Utah’s Republican governor, Gary Herbert, the Utah congressional delegation, and local county commissioners.
We get another Democrat in the WH and there won’t be much of Utah left for the people who live there given what the past two Dem presidents tried to carve out for the federal government.
