    GoFundMe for Trumpís border wall raises more than $11 million

    https://thehill.com/homenews/adminis...han-11-million

    A GoFundMe campaign to build President Trumpís long-desired border wall has raised more than $11.5 million in donations by Friday morning.

    The founder of the fundraising effort is Brian Kolfage, a triple amputee and Purple Heart recipient. He said the money will be turned over to the Trump administration for the wall's construction.
    ==============================
    Nice start but $11M will barely start to pay for the necessary survey work needed before the proposed wall is even started. But it does show how many xenophobes have bought into this nonsense.

    Attacking a triple amputee and Purple Heart recipient? Stay classy Jack.

    Read my post again but with your glasses on. I attacked no individual.

    I'm rooting for the GoFundMe group that wants to make ladders. Make America Great Again!

    I can't figure out the scam here. You know it's BS because of the funding instructions:

    • If we don’t reach our goal or come significantly close we will refund every single penny. We are working on a time frame to achieve.
    So with roughly $13 million they're 1.3% of the way there to the goal of $1,000 million. So the money is going to be refunded, if his narrative is honest. So what's the point? Maybe it's so this grifter can generate some PR. He's also got a non-profit (presumably) to accept check donations so maybe that's it. Make a little money as the Executive Director of the charity.

    At any rate, looks like an obvious scam, so I don't know why anyone would pledge their money to this guy.

    Just asking, but do you ever bother to see if the topic is already being discussed?



    For those interested, the total is $12,778,062 at this moment. Link

    He's likely a grifter. A grifter is someone who swindles you through deception or fraud.

    Gosh, that's awful, but I guess the "pastor" was honest about the purpose so if people want to fund a luxury jet, that's their business. I know if I was in IRS I'd make a point of examining his church's books....
