Triple-amputee vet Brian Kolfage started raising money to build President Trump’s wall on Monday. In three short days, at the time of this writing, Airman Kolfage had raised over $7 million. As of Thursday night, $10 million had been contributed to the wall fund.
It’s a stunning feat to raise that much money in that short amount of time, but Americans want the wall, and the triple-amputee vet saw a way to get it built despite congressional Democrats blocking every effort to begin wholesale construction.
Kolfage literally began fundraising to build the wall on Monday, and in a few hours had raised over $22,000. On Tuesday, over $300,000 had been raised. On Wednesday, over $2 million had been contributed, and by Thursday afternoon, the fund was at $7 million. Thursday night, $10 million had been raised for the wall as word spread of the wounded veteran’s effort.
$2Million and the mainstream doesn’t even start airing till tomorrow evening! It’s going slow compared to what’s about to happen!

Airman Kolfage said that “GoFundMe Border Wall” was the number one search trend on Google. He also said that CBS News is coming to his home and that even CNN had been in touch for an interview.

ABC News also did a short story via the Associated Press. The article sticks to the facts & is not negative.
Surprisingly, even the Washington Post did a story which was “neutral.” That’s a good thing. Normally, WaPo’s coverage of anything having to do with President Trump is negative.
Fox News has been in touch with Kolfage, which is expected.
A Google search of “Brian Kolfage” shows that news outlets nationwide have now picked up the story.
Airman Kolfage is also reporting this from his GoFundMe page:
“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.
We have contacted the Trump Administration to secure a point of contact where all the funds will go upon completion. When we get this information secured we will update. We have many very high level contacts already helping.
Republican Representative Steven Palazzo of Mississippi is introducing legislation to direct the Treasury Department to issue government savings bonds which would allow us to fund the wall with this method. This is just one option, there are others on the table being discussed.”
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.”

Supreme Court Turns Away Environmentalists Trying To Stop Border Wall Construction
Another victory for national security & the border wall. This will help us as we continue the construction of our next projects if environmentalists come after us as they did at Project 2.
“The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear an appeal from a coalition of environmental groups that pushed back against the Trump administration’s construction of the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The groups, led by the Center for Biological Diversity, challenged a 1996 law giving the president authority to fight illegal immigration and border crossings, and limiting some legal challenges.
The coalition claimed that the Trump administration did not conduct sufficient environmental impact studies for the construction and that endangered species like the jaguar and Mexican wolf would be adversely affected by the barrier.
First, We Build The Wall, Inc was challenged on building our second border wall due to the claim that it would impact butterflies. Now, this. Perhaps we should just let the jaguars live along the border wall as a second layer of security?https://t.co/I6woZ1PSUV#BorderWall #KAG

They had asserted in their case that the law’s allowance for the secretary of Homeland Security to waive any laws necessary to allow the quick construction of border fencing violates the Constitution’s separation of powers. The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals had dismissed the case, citing a prior case from 2007 with “a nearly identical context.”
“This Court finds that precedent persuasive, and it compels the conclusion that Plaintiffs’ complaint fails to state plausible constitutional claims as a matter of law,” the Circuit Court’s ruling said.”
Meanwhile they’re funding frivolous lawsuits against @WeBuildtheWall bahahaha keep donating to them, it goes to fund their legal bills!! #karma @DonaldJTrumpJr @mamendoza480 @cbs4rgv @AP @FogCityMidge @nababuterfly @NatButterflies https://t.co/bdvJ4rDjc9
