CBS NEWS REPORTS:
A Florida man has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money online for President Trump's border wall, saying "it's up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling." As of Thursday afternoon, the GoFundMe campaign has raised more than $6 million, with a goal of $1 billion - a fifth of the $5 billion that President Trump has been demanding, unsuccessfully, from Congress.
Brian Kolfage, who says on the page he is a Purple Heart war veteran who lost three limbs, writes: "If the 63 million people who voted for Trump each pledge $80, we can build the wall." The fundraiser received contributions from more than 100,000 people by Thursday afternoon.
