Trump Supporters Started GoFundMe To Build Border Wall And Have Raised More Than $7 Million So Far
Trump supporters are not playing about Trump’s proposed border wall BUT THEN AGAIN this 7mill could be going to some kid in North Nowheres land lol
A Florida man started the GoFundMe campaign to raise money online for the wall, saying “it’s up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling,” @cbsnews reports. The campaign has taken off as people are pledging their hard earned cash to see that wall built at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Floridian Brian Kolfage, who says on the page he is a Purple Heart war veteran who lost three limbs, writes: “If the 63 million people who voted for Trump each pledge $80, we can build the wall.”
But Congress is not complying with Trump’s demand, leaving some of the president’s conservative supporters angry that he agreed ultimately to keep the government open without the funding from Congress.
On the GoFundMe page, Kolfage writes that “the government has accepted large private donations before, most recently a billionaire donated $7.5 Million to fund half of the Washington Monument repairs in 2012; this is no different.”
The Senate late Wednesday approved a stopgap spending measure that will keep the government open until February without President Trump’s requested $5 billion for the wall. The spending measure now goes to the House of Representatives, and it has to be signed by Trump.
