Trump signs executive order aimed at eliminating national monuments

President Trump just signed an executive order that threatens hundreds of thousands of acres of public land. The executive order is aimed at reducing or eliminating multiple national monuments across the US, potentially taking public access, and water and land protection safeguards with it. The move is aimed at the newly-designated Bear’s Ears Monument and the Grand Staircase-Escalante Monument, both in Utah, which were designated by Presidents Obama and Clinton.
