Border Wall GoFundMe Sky Rockets Past $12 MILLION With Over 200,000 Donors

One triple amputee veteran is showing the world that American determination always outweighs government incompetence.

Frustrated by the never-ending carousel of excuses created by the Washington establishment, Brian Kolfage, a triple amputee veteran, took matters into his own hands and set up the “We The People Will Fund The Wall” GoFundMe account specifically to raise the funds need to build a border wall.

In the GoFundMe’s first day of existence, they raised more than $215,000.

And now, four days into the campaign, more than 200,000 individuals have donated more than $12 MILLION to the cause.

While one anonymous donor did contribute $50,000 and Fortress Stabilization Systems, a basement wall repair company, donated $12,000, the overwhelming majority of donations have come from hundreds of thousands of small dollar donors.

Though efforts like this rarely produce real-world results, the GoFundMe may have served as a wake up call for President Donald Trump who was reportedly ready to sign a spending bill that did not fund the wall, only to reverse course as the GoFundMe has gone viral amongst grassroots Americans.

On Thursday, President Trump announced his intention to veto any bill that did not provide the $5 BILLION needed to fund the border wall.

Currently, the “We The People Will Fund The Wall” fund has a stated goal of $1 BILLION, but according to Kolfage, that’s simply the current limit GoFundMe allows, and his group is lobbying the company to increase the limit.

Kolfage appeared on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” earlier this week to discuss his efforts:
