    7-year-old boy raises $22,000 for Trump's border wall

    7-year-old boy raises $22,000 for Trump's border wall

    (KOAT/CNN/Meredith) – A seven-year-old Texas boy raised $22,000 for President Donald Trump’s border wall by selling hot chocolate.

    Benton Stevens of Austin said even though he has already raised so much, his goal is $50,000.

    As for his inspiration, he said he "saw that Trump really wanted to build a wall."

    Construction continues on the privately-funded section of the border wall in Sunland Park, New Mexico.





    A GoFundMe campaign started by the nonprofit group We Build The Wall, Inc.started in December and has since raised over $23 million. The group was founded by Purple Heart recipient and triple-amputee veteran Brian Kolfage.
    Perhaps with Benton’s large donation, he might be one of the campaign’s biggest supporters.

    The construction of the privately-funded section of the wall has met controversy. We Build The Wall, Inc. was served with a cease and desist order from the local government.

    But, the group insists they have all the necessary permits and approvals and the wall is under full compliance with local laws.

    The group says they will continue to add onto the border wall.

    Boy who donated $22K for Trump’s border wall celebrates at ribbon-cutting

    SUNLAND PARK, N.M.

    June 2, 2019



    (Benton Stevens collects donations for President Donald Trump's border wall. (Credit: CBS)A 7-year-old boy who reportedly donated $22,000 toward a wall between the U.S. and Mexico border helped cut a ribbon in front of a newly-built section.


    Benton Stevens joined organizers of “We Build The Wall” to celebrate the finished piece, complete with a ceremonial ribbon cutting, fireworks and plans for future projects, KFOX-TV reports.


    “We Build the Wall” touted its efforts to build sections of the border wall on private property, with organizers claiming they have 10 properties ready to go. The mayor of Sunland Park, however, said they don’t have the all-clear by the city to finish building the community.


    Stevens garnered widespread attention earlier this year when his hot chocolate stand raised money toward the construction of President Donald Trump’s border wall. “We Build The Wall” claimed Stevens donated $22,000 for the effort, KFOX said.


    While selling the drinks, one man reportedly called him “little Hitler.”


    “If he’s going to do it, he needs to learn that there’s going to be a little backlash,” his dad told CBS Austin at the time. “But I just wish [the critics] would do it in a little more respectful, adult-like manner.”

    7-Year-Old Boy Raising Money for Trump’s Border Wall Hits $22,000

    June 1, 2019

    Benton Stevens, a 7-year-old from Austin, Texas, has received national attention after raising $22,000 to help fund a section of the border wall at the U.S-Mexico border.


    The boy raised the impressive amount by selling hot chocolate, local news station KOAT reported.


    While Benton is pleased with the $22,000, he said his goal is to raise a grand total of $50,000 for the project.


    He said he plans on raising the extra money by selling lemonade.
    “Since it’s about to be summer,” he told KOAT, “I’m doing lemonade.”


    Benton’s mother, Jennifer Stevens, said her son’s fundraising efforts began back in February after he watched President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address.



    Benton said he was inspired to raise the money for President Trump because he “saw that Trump really wanted to build a wall.”

    President Trump’s son, Don Jr, praised the young entrepreneur, tweeting, “Love American entrepreneurship. Well done buddy!”

    However, according to his mother, Benton has also received backlash for his project.


    She told KXAN that someone even referred to his son as “little Hitler.”



    “People think he’s brainwashed,” she told the news station. “Well, of course, he supports Trump because we do, and he hears how we talk and this and that. Call that brainwashing, but I call it parenting, because we instill our values in him.”


    The money Benton raised is being donated to the non-profit organization called We Build the Wall, Inc.


    The organization started in December of 2018 with Go Fund Me campaign by Purple Heart recipient and triple-amputee veteran Brian Kolfage and has raised over $23 million.


    While the organization has built half a mile of the wall, it hasn’t come without controversy.


    The group has been served with a cease and desist by the local government according to KOAT.


    However, the news station says that We Build the Wall insists it has all the permits and approvals and “the wall is under full compliance with local laws.”

    Even a 7 year old child is SMARTER than those swamp rats in D.C. and knows his future is at stake with this massive invasion of our country and the crime and poverty it brings to our Nation.

    It must be stopped and it must be reversed.

    Shut down and defund the refugee, asylum, TPS and illegal alien FAILED policies!

    We do not need it.

    We already bring over 1,000,000 legally every year! Add to that the overbreeding and the thousands of kids they give birth to! That is way too many as it is!

    RAMP UP DEPORTATIONS BY THE MILLIONS...WE WANT THEM OFF OUR SOIL.
