The outdoor clothing giant Patagonia blasted President Trump’s executive orders that would reduce the size of two Utah national monuments Tuesday, in their latest move to push its progressive activism on its customers.
Patagonia posted a small message underneath the message on its website, calling Trump’s executive orders shrinking Utah’s Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments “an illegal move.”
“In an illegal move, the president just reduced the size of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments,” the retailer wrote.
In January, it supported former President Barack Obama’s decision to designate 1.35 million acres of Utah state land as a “national monument” to ensure the federal government had control over the land.
State officials and the majority of Utah residents opposed Obama’s land grab—a 2016 poll found that 60 percent of Utah residents opposed Obama’s push to designate Utah land as property of the federal government.
