The campaign's current goal: a lofty $1 billion.
Many of Trump's supporters were frustrated that he appeared to retreat on his shutdown threats after promising a fight over the wall, which had been central to his presidential campaign.
According to the GoFundMe page, Kolfage has contacted the Trump Administration to secure a point of contact where the funds will go and there are 'many high level contacts already helping'.
More than 20,000 people have donated in just four days since the campaign launched, racking up a staggering $2 million (as of time of writing).

He's not the first person to suggest that the border wall be built with private funds.
Kolfage adds that as a triple-amputee veteran with a family of his own, he says it's important to "ensure future generations have everything [U.S. citizens] have today".
Which is just $998 million short of Kolfage's goal, of one billion dollars. "Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society", Kolfage wrote on the GoFundMe page.
The president made building a wall at the U.S.'s southern border his signature campaign promise and had vowed to proudly shut down the government this week if he did not get the $5 billion he was demanding for that project. And Kolfage emphasizes that "if we don't reach our goal or come significantly close we will refund every single penny".
Kolfage said that he hopes the money raised "will jumpstart things" and "be less money Trump has to secure from our politicians". Rep. Steven Palazzo (R-Miss.) that would fund the border wall with savings bonds Americans could purchase.
