Can the President take wall donations if it's for a national emergency?

Hello bront:

Sure.. This pac'll SUPPORT building a wall, but your donation won't go towards paying for it. The government has no mechanism for accepting donations.

But we're going to call it a voluntary tax, not wall funding. If they build a wall with said tax, that's hardly our fault.

Or perhaps we can volunteer it as disaster relief funding to fix the damage to the barriers done by high winds, hurricanes, tornadoes, weather, etc. If it comes out as a wall, at this point, what difference does it make? Read my lips, this is not a wall. It's has a light on it, so it's a lighthouse.

Nonsense , let me help .......

How do I make a contribution to the U.S. government?

Citizens who wish to make a general donation to the U.S. government may send contributions to a specific account called "Gifts to the United States."

This account was established in 1843 to accept gifts, such as bequests, from individuals wishing to express their patriotism to the United States. Money deposited into this account is for general use by the federal government and can be available for budget needs.

These contributions are considered an unconditional gift to the government. Financial gifts can be made by check or money order payable to the United States Treasury and mailed to the address below.

Gifts to the United States

U.S. Department of the Treasury

Sure. All we need is an actual national emergency!

I suggested days ago that his billionaire friends …. you know, those guys that are strapped for money?? If the Kochs, the Adelsons, etc. want to pay for the wall, LET'EM BE MEXICANS! Turn his election contributions into wall payments! I'm all for THAT!

Well, MOSTLY. It COULD get him re-elected, which would REALLY SUCK! But, no, I think people are REALLY tired of the lies …. REALLY tired! Besides …. he gave a bit of a pay raise to some, which was nice. Now, he's taking it back through their Income Tax Returns, which REALLY SUCKS again! I'd call him an Indian giver, but, that would be racist! There's a LOT of other things I can call him. :-(
