A veteran from Arizona has started a viral GoFundMe campaign to raise one billion dollars, yes, billion with a B to make it possible for President Donald Trump to finally build his "big and beautiful wall" along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The GoFundMe fundraiser, which is titled "We The People Will Fund The Wall," was launched by veteran Brian Kolfage and has already raised a whopping 17 million dollars.
The 37-year-old, who resides in Florida, is a father of two, a triple-amputee who was seriously injured while fighting in Iraq with the U.S. Air Force in 2004.
He has been making the rounds on FOX News to talk about his desire to help Trump and take action on immigration.
Kolfage explained: "I was frustrated with our political leaders and what they're doing – their broken promises and dragging things on. I thought having the GoFundMe would allow people to come together on the internet to show support for what they wanted. Raising this kind of money shows how important this is and that people want to support it."
He shared a lengthy post praising Trump and detailing the reasons for his ambitious goal: "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."
He continued: "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. 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."
He also slammed Democrats: "Democrats are going to stall this project by every means possible and play political games to ensure President Trump doesn’t get his victor. We can do it, and we can help President Trump make America safe again!"
Critics are bashing Kolfage as a scammer, and
Trump supporters see him as a hero. Do you agree?
