Veteran creates Ladders to Get Over Trump's Wall fundraiser to help immigrants

A GoFundMe campaign was set up by a veteran to raise funds to pay for the border wall.

TOPSHOT - Men from Mexico climb the US-Mexico border wall in Playas de Tijuana, northwestern Mexico, November 18, 2018.

He goes on to say, "Democrats are going to stall this project by every means possible and play political games to ensure President Trump doesn't get his victor [sic]".

According to the statement on the GoFundMe page, Kolfage feels 'deeply invested in this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today.' Stating that he is neither a liberal nor conservative, Kolfage simply wants to protect the rights of the American people.

That seems far too ambitious, since millions who voted for Trump did so for other reasons (religious freedom, fear or disgust of Hillary Clinton, et cetera).

A nearby worker told the same outlet that the power of the explosion shattered the windows of the building he was working in. Dozens of people were injured in the explosion Sunday night at a Japanese restaurant in northern Japan, police said.

The campaign has raised upwards of $7 million (and climbing fast; it jumped from $6.4 million to $7 million in about 30 minutes).

The donation page entitled "We the People Will Fund the Wall" was created by triple-amputee Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage.

Kolfage wrote that the team behind the campaign has contacted the Trump administration and a law firm in efforts to guarantee that the money goes toward a wall. President Trump's main campaign promise was to BUILD THE WALL.

Now, the veteran is fighting for what he voted for, a president who said he'd make America great again and promised to "BUILD THE WALL".

The page, which was launched on Sunday, has a fundraising goal of $1 billion, the maximum amount that the site will allow users to raise.

Trump brags about 'artistically designed steel slats' of proposed border wall
"I think you saw Chuck Schumer having another one of his tantrums", Scalise said on "Outnumbered Overtime". Meanwhile, Sanders expressed optimism that the White House could find legal ways to obtain extra funding.

The president's push for funding for a border wall was being tied into government budget funding and would cause a partial government shutdown by midnight on Friday.

The effort was started by retired Air Force Senior Airman Brian Kolfage, who was severely injured in a 2004 blast in Iraq.

"I laughed and then thought: 'Wait... why not?,'" Clymer said, later adding: "I'm a big fan of RAICES and proud of the work they're doing in Texas".

He's not the first person to suggest that the border wall be built with private funds. But he also said he thinks we need the wall for national security.
