The America First Foundation, Inc. has begun accepting donations toward the construction of the southern border wall.
Could a private, little-known foundation be successful in securing contributions toward the building of the wall? Trump’s campaign secured donations through grass-roots supporters, and his promise to ‘build the wall’ was one reason he was elected. Does this mean the potential for raising money for such an effort is feasible?
The Daily Caller reports –
President Donald Trump’s border wall project could get funding through an unlikely method: voluntary donations from private citizens.
The newly-founded America First Foundation, Inc., has started accepting donations to fund “the great wall of America,” with the ultimate goal of raising $21 billion to contribute to construction of the nearly 2,000 mile, 18 to 30-foot-high barrier between the U.S. and Mexico.
“This is not a joke, this is not a scam, this is the REAL DEAL!” a post on the group’s Facebook page reads.
America First’s founders want to bring the American people together to be part of what will be a historic construction project, securing the southern border by slowing illegal immigration, reduce drug trafficking, and reducing the burden on federal coffers.
