Fox News Contributor Suggests Trump Supporters Could Fund the Wall Themselves
In a conversation on Fox and Friends this morning, Michael Goodwin, a New York Post columnist, suggested that Trump voters should come together and pay for the border wall.
As the threat of a government shutdown over funding for Trump’s $5 billion border wall looms, Fox and Friends host, Brian Kilmeade wondered, “is there a private way to do this?”
Goodwin enthusiastically replied, “there is, you can create a GoFundMe operation.”
The New York Post columnist cited an existing fundraising effort called FundTheWall.com, which he insisted has “raised some money”, but he concedes, “nowhere near what is needed.”
“According to my mail,” Goodwin continued, “a lot of people are willing to chip in.” He described one reader that wrote to him, “and says if the 63 million people who voted for Donald Trump each contributed $80, that would get you near the $5 billion mark.”
“The public could step in and effectively do this thing that the president wants,” he concluded.
Brian Kilmeade offered the idea of selling advertising along the wall to fund the project, to which Goodwin replied, “sure.”
