Boy Who Was Criticized For Selling Hot Cocoa For Border Wall Raises $22,000

Back in February we reported that 7-year-old Benton Stevens decided to sell hot cocoa in his neighborhood to raise money to fund Donald Trump’s border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

The Texas boy was labeled “little Hitler” on social media once the picture of his hot coco stand along with a sign that read “help Trump build the wall,” went viral. However, Benton said it wasn’t the first time he had been ridiculed for supporting President Trump. He was previously mocked by three women who wore pink hats and was clowned for wearing his “Make America Great Again” hat.

The boy’s mother set up a GoFundMe me account which stated that, “Benton watched President Trump discuss border security, building the wall and protecting our nation and he immediately decided ‘I want to help President Trump build the wall!” Despite the criticism, Benton managed to push through and raise $22,000— close to his $50K goal. According to ABC News, he donated the money to Brian Kolfage’s nonprofit, “We Build The Wall.”

The nonprofit recently made 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. We Build The Wall, Inc. was served with a cease and desist order from the local government.
