GoFundMe to refund donations for border wall

The GoFundMe campaign for Trump's border wall is refunding donors

The campaign, which was started in December by Iraq veteran and right-wing activist Brian Kolfage, was meant to be an end-run around the congressional stalemate over the wall and let Trump supporters pay for it directly, and as of Friday has raised almost $20.2 million (about 2 percent of the $1 billion goal, and 0.08 percent of the amount experts say it would actually require to build the wall).

Kolfage, a triple-amputee Air Force veteran, has since created a 501 (c) (4) nonprofit "We Build the Wall, Inc.", and is asking people to send their donation to the new organization instead.

Kolfage said that he hopes the money raised "will jumpstart things" and "be less money Trump has to secure from our politicians".

"We are better equipped than our own government to use the donated funds to build an actual wall on the southern border,"Kolfage wrote". There is a GoFundMe campaign owned by Kolfage under the same name with the update, "We have moved our campaign to a new website", with a link to an outside site. At the onset of the campaign, Kolfage said he would only collect the funds if the campaign hit its goal of $1 billion - about one-fifth of what President Trump has been demanding from Congress to build it.

"There was a change in the use of funds", Whithorne said.

"My personal issues have nothing to do with building the wall", Kolfage told NBC when asked why he failed to mention the scams to his wall donors. The money will be automatically returned if they do not, said Whithorne. "He also stated on the campaign page, '100% of your donations will go to the Trump Wall. I personally will not take a penny of compensation from these donations incurred in the furtherance of this mission".

According to an update provided by the founder of the page, Brian Kolfage, the government will not be able to accept the contributions.
