Triple-Amputee Veteran Raises More Than $5 Million for Trump's Wall

Triple-Amputee Veteran Raises More Than $5 Million for Trump's Wall

US Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage set up a GoFundMe campaign on Monday asking for supporters to pitch in to pay for the wall.

Critics of President Donald Trump's proposed border wall have a simple, yet effective, plan to help immigrants circumvent any physical barricades the president may build at the border.

Kolfage says his grandparents immigrated to the United States legally, adding, 'they did it the correct way and it's time we uphold our laws and get this wall BUILT!'

According to information on the GoFundMe page, Kolfage feels "deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today".

As of Thursday morning, the page had raised over $4.5 million and had been shared nearly 900,000 times. People have shared the campaign at least 172,000 times.

Kolfage wrote that the campaign has been in touch with the Trump administration "to secure a point of contact where all funds will go upon completion".

Either Trump never meant to build a wall and was scamming voters from the beginning or he hasn't the first idea in how to get it done and no interest in finding out... President Trump repeatedly claimed Mexico would pay for it.

Now, the veteran is fighting for what he voted for, a president who said he'd make America great again and promised to "BUILD THE WALL".

The goal is $1 billion.

If we don't reach our goal or come significantly close we will refund every single penny.

The Senate approved legislation Wednesday to temporarily keep the government running to February 8, a key step toward averting a federal shutdown after President Donald Trump backed off his demand for money for a border wall with Mexico.

The U.S. Air Force confirmed that Brian Kolfage Jr. lost his legs and right arm after a rocket attack in 2004. Meanwhile, if you find yourself on the other side of the wall debate, you can support this totally serious GoFundMe to build an escalator over the wall.

The reception toward Kolfage's fundraising is far from the reaction when Arizona lawmakers similarly tried to raise money for border fencing several years ago.
