Two competing GoFundMe campaigns – one raising money to pay for President Donald Trump’s border wall and the other seeking funds to buy ladders for migrants to climb over said wall – are both continuing to draw donations.
The original crowdfunding campaign, entitled We The People Will Fund The Wall, surpassed $16.5million as of Monday afternoon, on its way to its lofty $1billion goal.
More than 272,000 people have donated to the page since it was created on Sunday by Brian Kolfage, a triple amputee Air Force veteran.
The campaign description says in part: ‘It’s time we uphold our laws, and get this wall BUILT! It’s up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling.’
