A White House official says President Donald Trump has received U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's recommendations about national monuments protecting wilderness and ocean.

The official says Trump is reviewing Zinke's "recommendations to determine the best path forward for the American people."
The official was not authorized to publicly discuss a draft report and insisted on anonymity.
Zinke told The Associated Press Thursday he's recommending none of 27 national monuments be eliminated.
But he says there would be changes to a "handful."
