***UPDATE - Donations have exceeded $4 million! ***
Many people have pledged their support for President Trump's border wall. Now they are putting their money where their money is with a GoFundMe started to build the wall. The project has already raised over half a million dollars.
The project was started by Florida-based triple amputee veteran Brian Kolfage. Brian is hoping to fund Trump's border wall through donations from the public. Find more information on the wall here.
This isn't the first time Kolfage has taken big-time action for something he believes in. He has spoken out in a big way against censorship on digital media platforms.
Kolfage has vowed that the United States government will be able to spend the money on the wall and the wall alone. Below is part of his message:
“Like a majority of Americans we elected President Donald J Trump 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.
As a veteran who has given so much, 3 limbs, I feel deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today. Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society.
I have grandparents who immigrated to America legally, they did it the correct way and it’s time we uphold our laws, and get this wall BUILT!It’s up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling.
“If the 63 million people who voted for Trump each pledge $80, we can build the wall.” That equates to roughly 5Billion Dollars, even if we get half, that’s half the wall. We can do this.
This won’t be easy, but it’s our duty as citizens. This needs to be shared every single day by each of you on social media. We can do it, and we can help President Trump make America safe again!
In just two days half a million dollars have been raised.
