PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — An Air Force veteran who started a GoFundMe page to help fund construction of President Donald Trump’s border wall has already raised millions of dollars.
In a statement posted on the page, Kolfage says the wall could be built if everyone who voted for Trump pledged $80 each.
“As a veteran who has given so much, 3 limbs, I feel deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today,” Kolfage adds.
He states that his grandparents immigrated to the United State legally as a reason why the wall should be built.
The veteran says has contacted the Trump administration about where to send the funds.
A triple-amputee injured in the Iraq War in 2004, Kolfage went on to serve at Davis Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona.
Kolfage did not immediately return a voice message and email seeking comment.
“This won’t be easy, but it’s our duty as citizens,” Kolfage says to end his plea for funds for a border wall.
