A Go Fund Me fundraiser first started in early December to support Trump’s border wall is reaching never-before-seen, staggering totals. The campaign had raised $12 million dollars in the first week. Today, it sits at nearly $18,625,668.
So much for “we can’t afford the wall,” huh?
- The campaign was first started by Brian Kolfage. Kolfage is a veteran, Purple Heart recipient, and most severely wounded airman in history – a triple amputee. He has been one of Trump’s most outspoken supporters with a heroic military history.
- Kolfage doesn’t mince words in the campaign’s description. “Like a majority of those American citizens who voted to elect President Donald J. Trump,” he writes, “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,” he continues further down. “They’d rather see President Trump fail, than see America succeed.”
- He’s right, of course, but what matters most is what the veteran writes when he gets straight to the point. “… 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.”
- If the issue of money is removed from the conversation, and Republicans show enough support for the wall, it will be much harder for Democrats to block the project. “This won’t be easy,” Kolfage explains, “but it’s our duty as citizens.”
- The embattled veteran has come under intense fire for the campaign, with the Left claiming he’s everything from a Charlatan to a scammer. But he’s just as stubborn as Trump, which is likely why the man is also hosting a petition to help push the government into action. You can read and sign it (if you agree) here.
- Much to the Left’s chagrin, the entitled “We The People Will Fund The Wall” campaign continues to collect support. In fact, another donation rolled in as we were writing this article. A few minutes later, another – and then another.
- Digging into the campaign’s donation history reveals something extremely encouraging. On average, money appears to be flowing into the Go Fund Me at around five to 10-minute, round-the-clock intervals. Americans clearly want this wall; they’re opening their wallets to prove it.
