President Trump has decided he’d like to go somewhere no president has gone before with our national park system.
Is it a First Family camping trip worthy of its own reality TV show? (Melania cooking over a portable stove. Donald Jr. pitching a tent.) No. The president is thinking about rescinding protections for national monuments set aside by previous presidents.
Trump likes talking about doing things no one has ever done before. And let the record show that no president has ever suggested this.
I’m here to say this idea deserves a closer look.
