Several GoFundMe pages have been launched to raise money for Trump’s wall. The most successful of those efforts is from veteran Brian Kolfage. In four days, his GoFundMe page titled We The People Will Fund The Wall has already raised over $3,910,509 of its $1 billion goal. The money was raised by 63,642 people.
This isn’t the first time crowdfunding the wall was attempted. In 2011, Arizona’s state government tried to crowdfund a $50 million wall on its border with Mexico. Four years later, Arizona abandoned the project after it raised less than $300,000.
