A seven-year-old Texas boy raised an astonishing $22,000 for the construction of Trump’s border wall with Mexico on hot chocolate sales. His goal is $50,000 and he says that “now that it is summer he will be switching to selling Lemonade. When asked why he did it Benton Stevens said simply, “I saw that Trump really wanted to build the wall.”
Stevens, from Austin, was a part of crowdfunding group called “We Build The Wall” and attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the sponsored section of the wall that was built on private land in New Mexico.
“We were honored to have him at our ribbon cutting ceremony yesterday for the wall he helped pay for along with all of you who donated,” the group wrote on Facebook.
According to “We Build The Wall” founder Brian Kolfage, Stevens was one of the largest donors to the cause.
This incredible young man Benton from Austin Texas raised $22k for We Build The Wall, Inc. He was one of our biggest donors and only 7 years old! It shows you that no matter what you can always make a large impact you just need to work hard! @DonaldJTrumpJr @gatewaypundit pic.twitter.com/Yh1OTlqfp5

In a ABC13 Houston video from February, Benton said he’s been called a “little Hitler.” Benton also mentioned he got the idea for the the stand from President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address.
His parents said reactions have been mixed, but they are proud of their son. It also appears the negative comments are not stopping him.
According to his website, due to attacks, “Benton’s Stand” has turned into much more than selling hot chocolate for the wall. Reasons to donate are if you believe:
- Adults should not cyber bully, verbally bully or make physical threats of violence against kids
- In Mercy, Compassion, Tolerance and Acceptance towards all people
- People from all political stances should speak kindly to one another
- We should judge ourselves before we judge others
- Wanting to know who comes into America and protecting our borders does not mean you are racist
- Children should be able to support our President without fear of retaliation
- In general, support American entrepreneurism and courage
