President Donald Trump visited Utah on Monday morning, delivering a speech in which he announced the reduction of both the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments.
Trump said on Monday that he will follow counsel from both Sens. Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee, as well as others, to sign two presidential proclamations that will modify Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments.
Social media was busy with reactions to the president’s time in Utah, with White House pool reporters sharing additional quotes from the president, and locals offering their thoughts on Trump’s arrival.
Initial reactions came when he arrived in Salt Lake City. Two viewers dressed up for the president's arrival.
Others pointed out protest signs and demonstrations.
Pool reporters revealed other quotes from Trump during his visit, specifically about the LDS Church.
White House pool reporters also shared Trump’s comments on Mitt Romney, who ran for president in 2012 and helped organize the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City.
Tweets of Trump's visit to Welfare Square were shared, too.
While speaking at the Utah Capitol, Trump said Christmas is back.
"Christmas is back, bigger and better than ever before,” he said.
