GoFundMe to build Trump’s border wall raises more than $3M in two days

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – A GoFundMe campaign created just two days ago to fund President Trump’s proposed border wall has raised more than $3 million of its $1 billion goal.

The fundraiser called “We The People Will Fund The Wall,” was created by veteran Brian Kolfage. 

According to his website, Kolfage is a senior airman who lost three limbs while fighting in Iraq in 2004. Kolfage now works as a motivational speaker. 

In the fundraiser page, Kolfage shares his verified Facebook page to confirm his identity. 

“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,” Kolfage wrote. “It’s up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling.”

Kolfage claims he has been contacted by the Trump Administration and has “very high-level contacts already helping.”
