    In December 2018, a US veteran named Brian Kolfage launched a campaign on the crowdfunding site GoFundMe called “We The People Will Fund The Wall.” The purpose was self-explanatory: It aimed to raise one billion dollars to help finance a wall on the US-Mexico border, in support of a central election promise of President Donald Trump. Within a week, the campaign received $17 million in donations and plenty of national media attention. Soon after, Kolfage brought on former Trump aide Steve Bannon as a collaborator. By Tuesday of this week, the effort—since renamed “We The People BUILT the Wall!”—had collected $25.6 million from over 250,000 individual donors. This morning, it all came tumbling down. The Department of Justice this morning...

    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 have given Brian Kolfage, the wounded veteran behind the viral GoFundMe "Trump Wall" campaign, permission to transfer at least $7 million to his new plan to privately fund and build a southern border wall, according to Kolfage and another source familiar with the effort.

His original goal was to raise $1 billion and hand over the money to the federal government to subsidize the cost of the wall. But last Friday, Kolfage changed course and announced...
