Millions raised for border wall on veteran's GoFundMe page

Kolfage said on the GoFundMe page, which had raised $2,870,805 toward its $1 billion goal as of Thursday morning.

According to reports Wednesday, the impressive amount has been contributed over two-days by more than 30,000 people.

Kolfage created the campaign on Sunday with a goal of $1 billion.

Either Trump never meant to build a wall and was scamming voters from the beginning or he hasn't the first idea in how to get it done and no interest in finding out...

He also said Mexico was paying indirectly for the Wall project through the new U.S-Mexico-Canada trade deal. Numerous donations on Kolfage's campaign are for far lower amounts, but there are also donations all the way up to $5,000 from an anonymous donor.

Kolfage does not give a clear indication of how the donations will be used but claims he has been in contact with the Trump Administration "to secure a point of contact where all funds will go upon completion".

Kolfage adds that as a triple-amputee veteran with a family of his own, he says it's important to "ensure future generations have everything [U.S. citizens] have today".

"That equates to roughly five billion dollars, even if we get half, that's half the wall".

"We haven't spoken directly to the president but would like to", Kolfage, who lost both legs and one hand serving in Iraq, emailed CNN.

His biography says that "till this day he is still the most severely wounded Airman to survive any war".

But on Tuesday, the White House appeared to step away from the brink of a shutdown.

Kolfage graduated from the University of Arizona's School of Architecture in 2014 and is now married with children.

US President Donald Trump has expressed disappointment about the possibility that Congress will not inject the wall project with fresh cash, saying it's "not good".
