WASHINGTON — Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah said on Friday that President Trump had told him the administration would shrink two national monuments covering millions of acres in the state.

Senator Hatch, a Utah Republican, said Mr. Trump told him in a phone conversation that he had approved recommendations drawn up by Ryan Zinke, the Interior secretary, to reduce the size of Bears Ears National Monument, established by former President Barack Obama, and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, designated by former President Bill Clinton.
