We would say “almost doesn’t count,” but the people who wanted to throw their hard earned cash at the construction of Trump’s proposed Border Wall were millions of dollars off their goal, so almost doesn’t even come close.The GoFundMe campaign dedicated to Americans funding the wall has been shut down after funders failed to reach the $1 billion goal set. That’s a one fifth of what Trump says the wall will actually cost.
GoFundMe Spokesman Bobby Withorne told business insider that the campaign’s founder, Brian Kolfage, initially promised donors that all donations would be used to pay for a wall along the US-Mexico border. “However, that did not happen,” Whithorne said. “This means all donors will receive a refund.”
But apparently that isn’t stopping Kolfage, who has now created a nonprofit Florida Corporation named “We Build the Wall, Inc.” and he’s asking donors to redirect their contributions to the company account.
