In the report, Zinke criticized restrictions on commercial fishing in the three monuments, discounting the industry's impact on areas such as the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts near the MA coast.

Trump hasn't signed off on any action regarding the Katahdin Woods and Waters.

"President Trump's unprecedented decision undermines a century of precedent under President Theodore Roosevelt's Antiquities Act and clearly demonstrates his continued inability to serve as a moral leader of our country", she declared. Environmentalists, however, criticized Trump's decision and vowed to fight the action in court.

At the time Trump issued his executive order on April 26, LGBT activists in NY expressed concern that a little-noticed clause in the order could impact small national monuments such as the Stonewall, even though Trump said his aim was to downsize national monuments located mostly in the western USA that consisted of hundreds of thousands of acres of land. This is land that somehow survived decades of cattle grazing by the Bundy family and is still in good enough shape to be admired for its natural beauty.

"You mean Patagonia, made in China?"

Cathy Johnson, from the Natural Resources Council of ME, said Zinke's statements to reporters and his reports haven't resolved uncertainty for local residents.

The company's website home page read on Tuesday: "The president stole your land" in large letters, calling his moves to cut the Utah monuments "illegal". "I think it is shameful and appalling that they would blatantly lie in order to get money in their coffers".

Myth: The monument review will sell/transfer public lands to states. As designated, Gold Butte National Monument comprises an area of almost 297,000 acres of public land, managed by the federal Bureau of Land Management. Instead, he described his Jerusalem declaration as recognizing the reality that most of Israel's government already operates from the city, and he suggested the US ally should be rewarded for creating a successful democracy where "people of all faiths are free to live and worship". But Zinke pushed back on that, saying "I don't yield to public pressure". "I believe that modest changes to Gold Butte will restore the public voice and will allow for critical public access for water rights and infrastructure". In Jordan, home to a large Palestinian population, the USA said it would close its embassy to the public on Thursday and urged children of diplomats there to stay home from school.

Some members of Congress have joined in, proposing legislation to support these attacks on public lands.

The Antiquities Act has become so antiquated it is now being used to preserve nondescript landscapes like the Great Basin.
