Trump 'wall' a popular GOP fundraiser at Ohio Fair

Just another brick in the wall

  • I've run out of fingers and toes to count all the so-called "Conservatives" who oppose the wall and want to keep our borders wide, wide open.
  • That is why I no longer call myself a Republican. I am a Constitutional Federalist. A man without a party.

CANFIELD, Ohio (WFMJ NBC) - A fundraising effort put on by Donald Trump supporters at the Canfield fair appears to be a success, in spite of upsetting a few people.

The pro-Trump contingent set up a board in front of the Republican tent at the fair last week.

Since then, contributors have been buying faux bricks made out of wood, to build a “wall”, like the one Trump is proposing to be built along the U.S. - Mexican border.

The “bricks” can be purchased for a donations ranging from $5 to $20.

Buyers have been writing messages on the bricks, many of those messages supporting construction of the wall to stem the tide of illegal immigration.

The response has been so great, the wall has been disassembled and rebuilt three times already.

Some people have expressed displeasure with the wall fundraiser, claiming it breeds hate.

Mahoning County GOP Chairman Mark Munroe defends the idea. In addition to calling it a fun way to raise money, Munroe denies that the wall is about hate, but instead about national security.

In addition to the wall, GOP officials say people have been dropping by their tent buying t-shirts, buttons, and signs to show their support for Trump.
