SALT LAKE CITY – Matt Whitlock, a spokesman for Senator Orrin Hatch, confirmed that President Trump will meet with LDS Church leaders when he visits Utah on Monday.

In a statement, Whitlock said:

“Senator Hatch has arranged for the President to meet with LDS Church leadership and to see the incredible work taking place at Welfare Square. In the past, Senator Hatch has arranged similar visits for Presidents and takes great pride in showcasing this iconic facility.”  

“I’m thrilled the President has accepted my invitation to come to Utah to discuss critical issues that matter to my constituents,” Hatch said in a statement sent to FOX 13.

Trump’s itinerary hasn’t been released, but he is expected to sign an executive order shrinking the size of Utah’s Bears Ears National Monument, which now stands at 1.35 million acres. The executive order could also call for downsizing Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.
