Veteran's GoFundMe raises millions for Pres. Trump's border wall

A GoFundMe campaign wants to raise at least $1 billion to build a wall along the US-Mexico border.

The most successful GoFundMe effort to date has raised more than $22 million and counting in the past year for the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund, which provides counsel to victims of sexual abuse and harassment.

In the page update, Kolfage noted that he has petitioned GoFundMe to raise the maximum amount in order to raise the goal amount.

The president demanded that Congress include $5 billion in border wall funding in its spending bill or risk a partial government shutdown this week.

According to Kolfage, if each of the 63 million people who voted for Trump pledged $80, it would be sufficient to build the wall. "We will hold all funds and not release a single penny until we have all legal aspects covered to ensure our money goes only to the wall", Kolfage said. More than 118,000 people have contributed to the fund so far. "We can do it, and we can help President Trump make America safe again!"

In an email response sent to Splinter News, Kolfage explained that his GoFundMe project for the wall was a "common sense" solution to a problem Trump cares very much about.

Clymer, who works for the Human Rights Campaign, said she and twitter user @HoarseWisperer created the fundraiser on their own to show how absurd the border wall was.

Noting that his grandparents immigrated into the USA legally, the veteran said, "It's time we uphold our laws, and get this wall BUILT!"

President Donald Trump inspects border wall prototypes in San Diego, California on March 13, 2018. Kolfage said he is "working to get it raised".

A shell exploded several feet away and he eventually lost both his legs and his left arm. Kolfage is "the most severely wounded Airman to survive any war", his website states.

Kolfage graduated from the University of Arizona's School of Architecture in 2014 and is now married with children.

And because it is not easy to give money to the federal government that is dedicated for a specific goal, Rep. Steven Palazzo (R-MI) introduced legislation that would direct the Treasury Department to issue government savings bonds that could be used to fund the wall.

But on Tuesday, the White House appeared to step away from the brink of a shutdown.
