The GoFundMe page set up by a Florida Air Force veteran has raised more than $3 million in less than four days.

The crowdfunding page is currently receiving donations in the names of former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama, and more.

What's the background on the fundraiser?

The GoFundMe page, titled "We the People Will Fund the Wall," was created by Brian Kolfage, a triple-amputee Air Force veteran.

Kolfage created the campaign on Sunday with a goal of $1 billion. The fundraiser is titled, "We the People Will Fund the Wall."

In addition to names like Clinton and Obama, donations also continue to pour in under the names "Lee Harvey Oswald" and "Adam Schiff."

The page's goal is to help fund President Donald Trump's U.S.-Mexico border wall.

Kolfage's page states that "[i]t's up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling."

"If the 63 million people who voted for Trump each pledge $80, we can build the wall," Kolfage continues. "That equates to roughly $5 billion, even if we get half, that's half the wall. We can do this."

Kolfage adds that as a triple-amputee veteran with a family of his own, he says it's important to "ensure future generations have everything [U.S. citizens] have today."

"As a veteran who has given so much, 3 limbs, I feel deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today," he writes. "Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society."

"[If] we can fund a large portion of this wall, it will jumpstart things and will be less money Trump has to secure from our politicians," he added.

What else?

The crowdfunding page has been shared on Facebook over 760,000 times, and has been receiving regular donations by the minute. At the time of this writing, the highest single donation has been $10,015.

Kolfage told Newsweek that if he doesn't reach his $1 billion target, he will return all of the donations to their donors.

“I could see the frustration among many Americans like myself. I knew there was a possible way to do this with so many people passionate about the cause," he told the outlet.
