- Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke told reporters late Tuesday that Trump's order would require him to conduct the review of around 30 national monuments created over the past two decades, and recommend which designations should be lifted or altered.
- On rescinding or altering a national monument designation, Zinke said: "It is untested, as you know, whether the president can do that."
- President Woodrow Wilson reduced the size of Washington state's Mount Olympus National Monument in 1915, arguing there was an urgent need for timber at the time, one of the few examples of national monuments being changed.
- A summary of the order said past administrations "overused" the Antiquities Act that allows presidents to create monuments.
- "With this review, the Trump Administration is walking into a legal, political and moral minefield," said Kate Kelly, public lands director for the Center for American Progress.
