Trump’s Mexican wall plan gets funded by total strangers and wall fans

On Tuesday, the White House communicated that they might not force the shutdown for funding of the border wall. This has put out the hopes away for the republicans for the creation of a wall towards the southern border.

However, one group comprised of the Trump fans created a particularly quixotic plan for the completion of the wall. Instead of waiting for the Congress to fund billions for this wall, the group is now to try & pay around $22 billion for this wall, all by themselves.

By Wednesday evening, around 10 p.m., this group managed to collect close to $155,000 which is 0.0007 percent of the total estimated construction cost for the wall. The head for this nonprofit organization raising money for construction of the wall named Quentin Kramer, describes this act as “Herculean Effort”.

The American Border Foundation now claims inflow of donations from more than 2600 people which includes one superfan of the wall who gave this project about $5000. However, this was enough only to fun 211.25 feet. The border of Mexico shared with the U.S. is close to 2000 miles in length. Collectively, this amount is way less as compared to the actual funding required.
