President Trump Declares Major Reduction of Bears Ears Monument

SALT LAKE CITY — President Trump said he would dramatically reduce the size of a vast expanse of protected federal land in Utah on Monday, a rollback of some two million acres that is the largest in scale in the nation’s history.

The administration said it would shrink Bears Ears National Monument, a sprawling region of red rock canyons, by about 85 percent, and cut another area, Grand Staircase-Escalante, to about half its current size. The move, a reversal of protections put in place by Democratic predecessors, comes as the administration pushes for fewer restrictions and more development on public lands.

Just when I think I can't hate that man anymore... he sinks to new levels of assholery

Trump’s unprecedented move to shrink a U.S. monument is certain to spark a protracted court case. Trump’s effort “could alter the course of American land conservation, possibly opening millions of protected public acres to oil and gas extraction, mining, logging and other commercial activities,” The New York Times reports.

Yvon Chouinard, founder and CEO of outdoor gear maker Patagonia, told CNN’s Bill Weir that he’s going to help fight against Trump and his “evil government”:

ie - after the election. If this was such a critical "monument" why wait till he'd alredy been handed his hat.

Exactly, R7.

Every single thing he does needs to be reversed once he leaves office, as a matter of principle.

One positive thing Trump does is to make me feel good about being old.

I think this will be fought.

Per pool reports: Trump motorcade runs into a "wall of protesters" signs include "Trump, a monumental mistake," "Tiny Hands off our lands, and many chanting "F**K You Trump!"

R7, does it matter when he did it? He did it. I dont think doing it before the election would,have added any safeguards. While I like that he did it, I don't get how he,had that authority, and certainly how trump has the authority to tescind it. Each of his assaults further hardens the rage I feel toward the stupid bigots voting for him. I hope they suffer for it.

R11, I know what you mean sort of, but it would be nice to exit with a sense of the world being in a good place.

He's so evil

He wants to undo anything that is good about America. I hate him so much. I am just glad my dad isn't here to see this day.

R2 Why? Because he's giving the Indians back their lands? The lands that Obama stole from them?

by Anonymousreply 1812/04/2017

Yes, R17, it's all about commerce for him and his pals. Privatizing prisons, schools, gutting net neutrality, deals for more Trump brand crap. Pulling out of the Paris climate accord. If only it were just his voters who got hurt by him, but it's not.

But imagine all the jobs that will be created by the new Bears Ears Trump Golf Course!

The Indians want Bears Ears preserved as is R18. Are you just a troll, or a just a fucking idiot?

It almost sound like a satire, like he wants to enter Montgomery Burns level of evilness.
