$20 million donated to viral border wall GoFundMe set to be refunded

The $20 million that have been donated to a GoFundMe page to help fund President Donald Trump’s wall along the southern border are going to be refunded.

Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage Jr., who started the campaign, announced on Friday he had formed a non-profit in Florida to receive money from GoFundMe contributions to build the wall himself with a team of officials without the help of the federal government.

“We are better equipped than our own government to use the donated funds to build an actual wall on the southern border,” Kolfage Jr. said in his announcement of the new plan. “Our highly experienced team is highly confident that we can complete significant segments of the wall in less time, and for far less money, than the federal government, while meeting or exceeding all required regulatory, engineering, and environmental specifications.”
