As of this writing, Brian Kolfage's "We The People Will Fund The Wall" GoFundMe page has $798,957.
"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 said.
Last week, the president welcomed the possibility of a government shutdown over the wall in a televised meeting between himself, Vice President Mike Pence, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
According to reports Wednesday, the impressive amount has been contributed over two-days by more than 30,000 people. He claims that "many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens", though studies have found a negative correlation between undocumented immigrants and crime rates. They'd rather see President Trump fail than see America succeed. "That equates to roughly $5 billion, even if we get half, that's half the wall".

Following this, Theresa May capitulated and announced that a vote would be held on January 14th next year. But one of Mrs May's closest allies said "all options" should remain open if the deal is rejected.
Kolfage writes on his campaign page that he like the "majority of those American citizens who voted to elect President Donald J Trump, we voted for him to Make America Great Again". Kolfage said on the GoFundMe page, which had raised $2,870,805 toward its $1 billion goal as of Thursday morning. On GoFundMe's homepage, Kolfage's campaign was also one of the top fundraisers as of this afternoon.
