Donald Trump was broadly criticized for totally diminishing two national monuments, showcasing the extensive extermination of public lands preservation in US history. The President altered designations for Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante in Utah, inherently inviting big corporate developers and the oil and gas industry. The step, abandonment of erstwhile presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton looks definitely objectionable in court.

Trump said that some people contemplate that the natural resources of Utah should be curbed by an insignificant amount of very remote bureaucrats situated in Washington, but they are wrong. The families and fraternity of Utah know and have a deep attachment with this land and you are the best known entity for your well looked after land. You are responsible for its protection, and you know the nitty grrities of sustaining this land for the future generations.

Bears Ears will be cut from almost 1.5m acres to 228,784 acres, while Staircase will be halved from around 2m acres to 1,006,341 acres. Trump who is concentrating keenly on eliminating Barack Obama’s legacy narrated by precursor’s Antiquities Act nomination as a menace to people’s inhabitation thrusting limitation on hunting, ranching and economic development. He said that government labor gravely attacked the aim, spirit and purpose and intent of a century-old law known as the Antiquities Act. According to this Act the law necessitates, the minutest obligatory area required to be set aside for exceptional conservation as national monuments.
