Back in the United States, more than 5,000 people rallied at Utah’s state Capitol in Salt Lake City Saturday, protesting President Trump’s plan to open up protected federal lands to mining, logging, drilling and other forms of extraction. Trump is scheduled to visit Utah today, where he’s expected to announce he’s shrinking the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments. On Sunday, over 100 protesters dressed in white lay on the lawn of the Utah Capitol building and spelled out the words Go Home Trump with their bodies.
