The decision to reduce the size of the two national monuments in Utah was an incredibly poor decision. It clearly highlights how little Trump cares about this nation and demonstrates his complete lack of integrity. The only way that Trump will win the next election is if the democrats are stupid enough to put someone like Hillary Clinton on the ticket. In other words, he could win, but considering his low approval rating, only very few people would consider him a positive choice. Just like in the last election, he might win votes by being what voters consider to be the least objectionable choice between two incompetent idiots.

Trump's policies aren't very popular and so I'd expect a lot of people who voted for him are not too happy with his performance. It's not realistic to assert that he has much chance of winning a second term, but then again the democrats keep making stupid mistakes and so anything is possible. The democrats cater to too many fringe groups and that makes it impossible for them to have any kind of coherent policy. They do stand up for conservation of public lands which is a good thing, but then they waste a lot of time on social justice issues and that turns a lot of people off. The republicans are insane in other ways and Trump is just out there in left field somewhere playing with himself. Most people are fed up with politics here in the USA and are sick and tired of the poor quality of candidates running for public office. I'm not optimistic about anything improving anytime soon! Sorry, but I'm a realist!

Bears Ears and Escalante should retain National Monument status. What Trump is attempting to do is to rob us of our national treasures. These lands were protected for a reason and Trump has lost a lot of support as a result of his reckless decisions.
