DENVER—In response to today’s announcement that President Trump is donating his first quarter salary to the National Park Service, the Center for Western Priorities released the following statement from Deputy Director Greg Zimmerman:

“President Trump and Secretary Zinke should be embarrassed by today’s publicity stunt. You can’t propose $1.6 billion in cuts to our public lands, then pretend a $78,000 donation makes it better. The White House needs to protect America’s parks and public lands, not pay lip service to them.”
