Trump’s wall: more ways to skin a rat
It remains to be seen how this will work out. US Congress is loath to give Trump the money. A GoFundMe cause to build the controversial border wall is only a few days old and has already collected more than $US12 million. The wall was one of Trump’s campaign promises and Donald Trump is one of the very few politicians on earth that keeps a promise, as we have seen. Clearly, the Democrats are pulling every trick possible to bring Trump down and this crowd funding, if it brings a staggering amount will show public support. That would be harmful to the Democrats and helpful to Trump. It could fizzle out, the coming days will determine that.
If neither Mexico nor Congress is going to fund President Trump’s border wall, then Brian Kolfage has a more expedient plan: GoFundMe. In just four days, the military veteran’s crowdsourced campaign for construction of the border wall has raked in more than $12 million in donations from nearly 200,000 people, with donations surging after his Thursday-night appearance on Fox News with host Laura Ingraham.
