Wounded Warrior Launches GoFundMe Page For Border Wall

Wounded Warrior Launches GoFundMe Page For Border Wall

"If the 63 million people who voted for Trump each pledge $80, we can build the wall", Kolfage wrote.

"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!" Far more money coming to the USA because of the tremendous dangers at the Border, including large scale criminal and drug inflow, the United States Military will build the Wall!'

As his presidency progressed, however, she complained about his failure to build a southern border wall - perhaps the central promise of his campaign.

Kolfage is a senior airman who lost three limbs while while fighting in Iraq in 2004, according to his website. The President's legislative affairs director, Shahira Knight, was in the middle of arguing that instead of pushing for the border fight so close to the midterm elections, the White House should hold off until after November when they would be in stronger position to fight over funding.

The 37-year-old Air Force vet of Miramar Beach, Florida, said in an email to The Washington Post that he made a decision to start the campaign on Sunday because "political games from both parties" have been holding back funding for the wall. He insisted that "one way or the other, we will win on the Wall!"

"We have other ways that we can get to that $5 billion that we'll work with Congress", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told Fox News on Tuesday.

Trump accused Democrats in a Twitter post earlier on Wednesday of being willing to fund everything but "border security and the military", while his senior adviser Kellyanne Conway took Republican lawmakers to task for not pushing harder on the issue.

Kolfage claims, "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". In 48 hours, the campaign has already received more than $US750,000 in donations. A 107 mm rocket shell exploded about three feet away from him, sending him airborne. Trump's most ardent supporters have been demanding the costly wall for years and so far he has completely failed to deliver on one of his biggest campaign promises.
