GoFundMe page for building the border wall soars past $3 million and shames the GOP pols who betrayed their mandate
Brian Kolfage, a decorated military hero who served as a senior airman and who is a triple amputee, has shamed the border wall turncoat Republicans in Congress. It takes a triple amputee to do the heavy lifting for them, apparently.
The GOP has betrayed its base by cutting out spending for the border wall from the continuing resolution hastily passed by the Senate last night and now up for a vote in the House.

In their place is this GoFundMe page:
• My name is Brian Kolfage, I have a verified blue check facebook page as a public figure and I'm a Purple Heart Recipient triple amputee veteran. ...
• The campaign is set to the MAX that Gofundme has at the moment... working to get it raised
• USE #GoFundTheWall as a hashtag on social media ...
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.
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. And as he's followed through on just about every promise so far, this wall project needs to be completed still.
As a veteran who has given so much, 3 limbs, I feel deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today. 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.
I have grandparents who immigrated to America legally, they did it the correct way and it's time we uphold our laws, and get this wall BUILT!It's up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling.
"If the 63 million people who voted for Trump each pledge $80, we can build the wall." That equates to roughly 5Billion Dollars, even if we get half, that's half the wall. We can do this.
Democrats are going to stall this project by every means possible and play political games to ensure President Trump doesn't get his victor. They'd rather see President Trump fail, than see America succeed. However, 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.
This won't be easy, but it's our duty as citizens. This needs to be shared every single day by each of you on social media. We can do it, and we can help President Trump make America safe again!
