#OTD 112 years ago, the #AntiquitiesAct was signed by President Roosevelt & since used to create over 150 national monuments. I’m proud to stand with the millions of Americans who love and cherish our national #MonumentsForAll.
16 Presidents – 8 Republicans and 8 Democrats – have used the #AntiquitiesAct to safeguard public lands, oceans, and cultural and historic sites in order to share America’s story with future generations. President Trump wants to shrink these national treasures.
I stand with America’s #MonumentsForAll, and will fight to preserve our country’s most important national monuments, like #BearsEars and #GrandStaircase.
