Triple Amputee Vet’s GoFundMe Page to Build Trump’s Wall Has Raised Incredible Amount of Money in Just 2 Days

President Trump is in a tough battle to secure funding for his new U.S.-Mexico border wall. A famous triple amputee US Air Force veteran has an idea on how to help.

And it appears to be working.

According to FOX 17 Nashville, Brian Kolfage lost two legs and a right hand while serving in Iraq. He recently gained a lot of attention after getting into a battle with Facebook, which blacklisted his page amidst a sweep of over 800 other pages and accounts for “violating its rules against spam and ‘inauthentic behavior’” before the November midterm elections, CNET reported.

Now as Kolfage continues to fight with Facebook, the vet has started a GoFundMe page to help Trump build his wall through private donations, Business Insider reported.

“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,” Kolfage wrote on the Go Fund Me page.

“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!” he added. “It’s up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling.”

He pointed out that private funds have been donated to aid government projects before, citing the $7.5 million given in 2012 to cover half of the needed repairs to the Washington Monument in D.C.

As of 4:30 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday, Kolfage had exceeded $900,000 in donations from over 14,000 people in just two days. That amount puts Kolfage just shy of 1% of his $1 billion goal, but it’s still an impressive start.

The veteran’s move seems to have answered a suggestion by New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin, who wrote a piece on Sunday entitled: “Why hasn’t someone made a GoFundMe for Trump’s wall?”

Goodwin said he wrote the article in response to multiple people asking him how they, as private citizens, could help build the barrier.

“It seems that the taxes we pay are not going to be spent for our border protection by Chuck and Nancy and a number of Republicans,” one reader complained.

“If Congress won’t secure the borders, then it is necessary for the public to step in,” Goodwin concluded. “It would be a modern and critical twist on the Founders’ ideal of self-government.”

The highest donation by Wednesday afternoon to Kolfage’s GoFundMe page was an anonymous donation of $5,000. Numerous donations were for $1,000 and above.

    Please get in touch with me on this.

    Brandy,We are going to roll solo with this at the moment, trying to get don jr to endorse us as I’ve spoke wit him in past. We realize many others are doing this, we just feel we have the connections to make a very large impact ourselves to get this rolling.
    Then it would be nice if you could help us get to the right contacts like Don jr. to send this money to the right place?

      You are so correct Rose. We must contact the bikers. Together we will get enough funds to build the wall. There are many people that won’t miss a fair amount of money, but if enough people donate perhaps a hundred dollars it will add up.

      All the URL’s are in the report above. Many where we can send the donation.

    I was told that Go Fund Me takes like 1% of the money raised. This is a great start. There is another fund going at http://www.fundthewall.com so check it out too!

    • Ilse

      There is a fund page that does not take any percentage. But we must be cautious as not to get on a scam page and make some crook rich.

    I read recently Go Fund Me gets 20% of all donations. We need to figure this out. I had been a proponent of what this vet is doing until I saw the 20% payment to Go Fund Me. But will check into the http://www.fundthewall.com site as my husband have discussed making automatic monthly payments towards a wall. There is more than one way “to skin a cat” as the old saying was when I was a kid. I am sure someone would take offense at it today but old sayings do have their places to this day!

    I have a problem understanding why the left wing Democrats are anti-wall? Many Americans have fences around their property for a reason either – Keep Things In or Keep Things Out. A border wall on our southern border will do the latter – Keep illegal immigrants out!!!

    was for it until President Trump won. Now they are trying to wreck him. They do not love America or our troops as President does.
