By Jeff Rainforth, writer for Airman Kolfage’s build the wall campaign: Ever since triple-amputee vet Airman Brian Kolfage announced the all-star team that would oversee construction of the wall that he raised over $20 million for, leftist fake news media went into overdrive, lying about what’s really going on. Headlines from CNN, CBS, Time and tons of other news outlets screamed, “All Money Being Refunded,” “GoFundMe Ends Campaign,” and “GoFundMe Refunds $20 Million After Campaign Fails.”
It’s all bullcrap, though. The money hasn’t been refunded, the campaign hasn’t ended or failed, and GoFundMe is still taking donations for Kolfage’s campaign to build the wall and will continue to do so.
When Airman Kolfage announced that the campaign would not only raise funds for the border wall but also begin construction on it on private land, everyone who donated before January 11th was offered refunds if they didn’t want their money to go towards construction of the wall. Dems in the House weren’t going to allow the money to be given to the government and used for construction of the wall, so Kolfage announced a team that would build it on private land.
Airman Kolfage addressed what’s going on in a video today with evidence.
The truth is, Airman Kolfage & GoFundMe OFFERED refunds to those who donated before January 11th who don’t want their money go towards construction of the wall. And almost everyone who donated is opting to have their money go to build the wall under Kolfage’s new plan.
Yesterday, GoFundMe reported that almost 90,0000 people out of the 324,000 who donated before January 11th have replied so far and that 91.4% of them have opted to have their donation go towards construction of the wall.
Airman Kolfage posted this earlier:
“The fake news liberal media said the “Gofundme me is cancelled! All money refunded” WRONG! RAISED $200,000 yesterday! We are building the wall And our team is getting bigger names and huge huge private donors coming forward! $1billion is our goal!”
MEDIA IS LYING! Our GoFundme Campaign Is SMOKING HOT! it's not being "cancelled" or "all refunded"
We are BUILDING the wall mile by mile for 50% the cost. If you donated before Jan 11th just opt-in on at https://t.co/uHdeeSUN97 @RyanAFournier @gehrig38 @mamendoza480 @MarkDice pic.twitter.com/i1Lt0OjMRM
