President Donald Trump has arrived in Salt Lake City, where he's expected to announce plans to shrink two sprawling national monuments in Utah created by past presidents. Bears Ears was established by President Obama in 2016, while Grand Staircase-Escalante was established in 1996 by President Clinton.
Audio will be available later today. President Barack Obama was particularly active in designating new and expanded monuments, bringing more land and water under federal protection than any president in history. "And guess what? They're wrong". Some held signs that said, "Keep your tiny hands off our public lands", and they chanted, "Lock him up!"
Ranchers, local governments and some tribal leaders and other residents have applauded Trump's decision.
Both were among a group of 27 monuments that Trump ordered Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to review this year.
Trump has said former presidents abused the Antiquities Act by putting unnecessarily big chunks of territory off limits to drilling, mining, grazing, road traffic and other activities - a headwind to his plan to ramp up USA energy output.
"The families and communities of Utah know and love this land the best and you know the best how to take care of your land". He said the decision would "give back your voice". The Bears Ears and surrounding sites are considered sacred to many American Indian tribes.
Conservation groups and outdoor clothing company Patagonia have also said they plan to file a legal challenge, arguing the administration ignored public support for the monuments. Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat he has nicknamed "Pocahontas" for her claim to have Native American heritage.
The Trump administration can resize an existing national monument thanks to a provision in The Antiquities Act of 1906.
Trump will also ask Congress to look at the areas that are being removed from the current monuments to consider designating some as a national conservation or national recreation areas, and create a co-management structure for tribes. Previous presidents have reduced the size of national monuments more than a dozen times. The former Montana congressman's plan would allow logging at a newly designated monument in ME and more grazing, hunting and fishing at two sites in New Mexico.
Mr Juncker insisted that a deal could still be reached this week, having described Mrs May as a "tough negotiator". Tusk, canceled a trip to Jerusalem and Ramallah and hastily scheduled his own meeting with May for after lunch.
