But donations slowed and Kolfage said the group had concluded that the government won't be able to make use of them in the foreseeable future. "Our highly experienced team is highly confident that we can complete significant segments of the wall in less time, and for far less money, than the federal government," he wrote on his fundraising page. Kolfage announced the move Friday after condemning the BuzzFeed article as "absolute lies to trick Americans" to not support the new venture. BuzzFeed also said that a 2015 GoFundMe campaign started by Kolfage raised over $16,000 for a veteran mentorship program. But it reported that three military hospitals named by Kolfage said they never received any funds from him.
