Patagonia vows to sue Trump administration over National Monument orders, tells customers ‘The President Stole Your Land’
The Patagonia clothing company is less than thrilled with President Trump’s plans for Utah’s national monuments and it’s making those feelings abundantly clear to all of its online visitors.
“The President Stole Your Land,” reads a message currently plastered across the retailer’s website in large white lettering.
“In an illegal move, the president just reduced the size of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments,” adds Patagonia, in a smaller message posted just underneath. “This is the largest elimination of protected land in American history.”
The “illegal move” that Patagonia is referring to is President Trump’s decision to move forward with two executive orders that would significantly reduce the sizes of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments in Utah, by just under half and 85 percent, respectively.
