If Congress won’t fund the wall, the American people will do it themselves. That’s the thinking behind a new GoFundMe page created by an American veteran. He is off to a running start, too!
The Daily Caller reports:
OVER 15,000 PEOPLE HAVE RAISED OVER A $1 MILLION ON GOFUNDME FOR TRUMP’S BORDER WALL
A GoFundMe page started by a Purple Heart Recipient has raised over $1 million in an effort to fund President Donald Trump’s border wall.
Brian Kolfage, a triple amputee who served in Iraq, created the fundraising page on Sunday. As of Wednesday afternoon, the fundraiser has received $1,003,544 from 16,333 donors.
One anonymous donor parted with $5,000, and over 30 people have donated $1,000 or more.
Kolfage wrote in the description of the page, “Like a majority of those American citizens who voted to elect President Donald J. Trump, we voted for him to Make America Great Again. President Trump’s main campaign promise was to BUILD THE WALL. And as he’s followed through on just about every promise so far, this wall project needs to be completed still.”

“Democrats are going to stall this project by every means possible and play political games to ensure President Trump doesn’t get his victor. They’d rather see President Trump fail than see America succeed,” it continued. “However, if we can fund a large portion of this wall, it will jumpstart things and will be less money Trump has to secure from our politicians.”
This is fantastic!
