Actually, the donations have cratered and continue to fall. At this rate he will have a billion in about a decade.  Wink



Keep trying

In less than a month (25 days) they have raised $20,143,707 , donations are still coming in, try as you might you simply cannot discount  how successful this push for a wall has been. 

But please, keep reminding everyone of this obvious failure   Grin Grin Grin

His spokesman says he pocketed the money. You fools always bitch about anonymous sources. Well, not anonymous now.




You think Bert can read more than one paragraph? That’s asking a lot.

14.5 million was raised in the first 4 days when it was fun and new and the Trump-loyalists were excited. That's 5.6 million in the last 21 days. And the rate at the front of the 21 days was much higher than today.

Correct, it has. It is basic math. Both the actual dollars generated vs the available pool of donors and the rapidly falling rate of donations confirm your conclusion.

I'm sure no one bothered to check. And it was really only with this new spotlight that his shady history became known.

The veteran who set up the GoFundMe for President Trump's border wall allegedly pocketed money meant for wounded veterans in the past, according to a new Buzzfeed News investigation.

Brian Kolfage, a triple amputee and Purple Heart recipient, reportedly previously spearheaded a crowdfunding campaign that raised thousands of dollars for an effort to mentor veterans at military hospitals.

Kolfage's fundraising effort for Trump's proposed border wall has so far received more than $20 million of a $1 billion goal from 334,860 donations.

Representatives at the military hospitals told Buzzfeed News that they did not have a record of Kolfage donating the money or working at their facilities.

GoFundMe spokesman Bobby Whithorne confirmed to Buzzfeed News that Kolfage in 2015 launched a GoFundMe that raised $16,246 under the premise that the money would go to a veteran mentorship program. Whitorne said the money went directly to Kolfage.

So, how is or was this guy supposed to give the money to the government?  Write a check to the IRS?

Who knows. Maybe he was just going to bundle it into a Trump political donation at the end of the day.  Wink
