Jan 11 - $20 million donated to Trump viral border wall GoFundMe set to be refunded

A GoFundMe campaign to subsidize what it called "the Trump Wall" will refund all money to donors because it did not meet its $1 billion goal, said Bobby Whithorne, director of North America Communications for GoFundMe. Donors will receive their money on April 11, unless they choose to donate their contribution to the campaign creator's new venture, GoFundMe said in an email to the campaign's participants.


Brian Kolfage, a triple-amputee Air Force veteran, raised more than $20 million on the crowd-funding platform to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. 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.

"However, that did not happen. This means all donors will receive a refund," Whithorne said in an email to CBS News.

The refund announcement came a day after BuzzFeed News reported that Kolfage pocketed money in a previous GoFundMe campaign intended to help other wounded soldiers. Kolfage raised $16,246 for a veteran mentorship program, but BuzzFeed News reports that after collecting the funds, he didn't use the money as promised: none of the partners he claimed to have worked with — including Walter Reed, Brooke Army Medical Center and Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany — have any records that Kolfage worked with their patients or donated money, according to representatives at the centers that BuzzFeed News spoke to.

In an update to donors Friday, Kolfage did not say missing the goal was the main reason for the refund. Instead, he pointed to government inefficiencies and the fact that the federal government "won't be able to accept our donations anytime soon."

Kolfage gave donors the option of giving their GoFundMe contribution to himself and a team he a.ssembled to privately construct the border wall. The group, a 501(c)(4), is called "We Build the Wall, Inc.," according to an email from GoFundMe to contributors.


"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," Kolfage wrote in his update.

According to the Internal Revenue Service, a 501(c)(4) is an non-profit "operated exclusively to promote social welfare."

Donors will have to proactively opt to give the money to Kolfage; if they do nothing the money will automatically be returned, according to Whithorne.

A spokesperson for Brian Kolfage, Jennifer Lawrence, did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment.

Funny how Liberals p!ss and moan all day about the Obama programs Trump cancelled yet haven't bothered to set up their own GoFundMe page to fund the programs themselves. Nothing but a Liberal virtue signalling dog and pony show. It's because "progressives" wouldn't dare spend their own money or anything but themselves.

Maybe it's because we're not dumbasses and know that gifts or donations for the Department can't be accepted or used unless specifically permitted in advance by Congress....

....also you know who held the house and Senate the past 2 years right?

Don't even know why I'm responding to a '19 troll account.

More political garbage post, from idiots who don't even understand politics.

Black men voting democrat, because f*gs and Black Queens tell them to. Even though the party hasn't addressed any of our needs in a century.

Clowns who don't understand that the border wall is an investment that will pay off over time.

Poor white people voting Republican, because they think they're better than f*gs and Blacks. Even though the party hasn't addressed any of their needs in a century.

May I ask, what's so great about the republican party? How are their states and policies better than others?

No its the clowns like the 40 plus year olds have meseed up. All or most of your wyparents havent educated or simply talked to their children about equality and being aware of discrimination.

This isnt all about or centered around Orange Man. Its always about the men amd women who claim to be parents - grandparents. What too many have done is dismiss the blatant one sided legislation going on for generations.

Its not just Orange Man who is the fool here. Its Mconnel. Sarah Hucklebee, Every single Republican who keeps defending the bullshyt. Keep wanting the failed system..because it has always served Wypeople only.

Its too late. We have already reached the point of no return. Unless wypeople do something immediately...it will only continue.

This has NEVER been an "US" issues. Its completely a racist and unintelligent Wypeople problem. The bottom dwelling morons are running the yard.

Troll all u want. I know for a fact i hear anyone speaking some Orange Man is in the right b.s id collect a face with my hands.

Never ever has this been a game. Only to too stupid and too lazy wypeople does this seem remotely normal. Yall heads in tje sand phukbwois did this.

Orange Mans wh0ore wife and lame children all meed to be prosecuted. The grandchildren gonna need another relative to raise them. Thats how all this needs to end.

For all of y single celled slugs...keep oushing that dumb shyt Political Party nonsense. I as a Black man.. The only "alliegence" i have is to equality. Since most of my ancestors NEVER received any. I know thats the next step for real change in totality in the U.S.
