The 'GoFundMe Wall' guy who raised millions from Trump supporters? See his new yacht

2 min read

Remember that GoFundMe page to raise money to build Trump his wall?

Well, this just got interesting:


Brian Kolfage is supposed to be helping Donald Trump build a wall with the 22 million raised. No construction has begun, even after multiple promises to break ground. However, Brian does have a nice, new yacht and is booking private air flights. He denies that he’s using the money for the wall to buy these luxuries, but the question remains: Where is the money going, then?

Who is Brian Kolfage? He’s an amputee war veteran with a loyal following who really loves Trump. If there was ever a king of “fake news,” Brian would have been it. He administered multiple conservative pages on Facebook, and they were, to put it delicately, sleazy.

A former employee, who requested anonymity, spoke to BuzzFeed News about working for him. She said, “He never wanted the truth. It was all just for clicks, and the more inflammatory, the better… I felt dirty writing the stuff.”

Facebook finally took action and removed hundreds of pages and accounts from their platform for “coordinated inauthentic behavior” and “spamming.”

According to The Stern Facts, an anonymous source said that Kolfage confided that he went “broke.”

If that truly was the case, then don’t worry. He seems to be doing much better these days.
