Representative Diane Black said she hopes to fund President Trump's border wall through crowdfunding.

The Tennessee gubernatorial candidate appeared on Fox News and Fox Business to discuss the Border Wall Trust Fund Act  bill that would make it easier for the public to help fund the border wall.

"If someone wants to send in money to the federal government to help to build the wall, they can do so, but we don't have a dedicated fund for it. And so what this does is actually dedicates a fund," Black said.

The money put into the Border Wall Trust Fund would be used only for planning, designing, constructing and maintaining a wall along the Southern border.
