Looks like the GoFundMe wall of 20M donations is shut down and donations will be refunded. From what I had read funds donated to the US Government go into the General Fund not special projects. Looks like the law wasn't changing any time soon.

Wonder it GoFundMe will refund their fees? Probably not and will probably charge another fee to do the refunds.

he should go to a private land owner on the border, lots of them would love to have a wall and build it to govt spec.

It states he was working with Congress to get the money approved, but it became clear he would need Congressional approval...which will not happen given the current state of affairs.

Still, makes a strong statement, with over 20 Million raised. Biggest campaign by a longshot in the history of GoFundMe.

Oh really, a bunch of rubes who were promised that Mexico would pay for a wall spent their own hard earned money on a go fund me for said wall knowing that money 1) wound t come close to paying for it and 2) there was no mechanism to get that money towards buildingg a wall.

and it didn’t go well?

Hmm. Who would’ve known?
