Florida veteran Brian Kolfage will be a guest on The Tennessee Star Report Thursday at 7:15 a.m. to discuss the trending fundraiser he launched to support President Donald Trump’s border wall.
The GoFundMe, which went live Sunday, has already raised $1.5 million in just over two full days. Kolfage is a retired U.S. Air Force member and veteran of the Iraq war, which cost him three of his limbs.
“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 said. “Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society.”
At the time of publication, his GoFundMe had raised $1,538,708 by 25,992 donors. Kolfage said his team has contacted the Trump administration to “secure a point of contact where all funds will go upon completion.”
He added that he’s working with a law firm to draft a legal document that will ensure the funds can only be used for a wall itself, and nothing else.
“If we don’t reach our goal or come significantly close we will refund every single penny,” he said.
Critics have suggested that Kolfage cannot legally provide funds for the wall to the government, but he points out that a donor paid $7.5 million in 2012 to help repair the Washington Monument.
“Democrats are going to stall this project by every means possible and play political games to ensure President Trump doesn’t get his victory. They’d rather see President Trump fail than see America succeed,” Kolfage said.
Kolfage will discuss all this and more on Thursday morning’s Tennessee Star Report with hosts Steve Gill and Michael Patrick Leahy. The show airs on 98.3 FM and 1510 WLAC out of Nashville.
