AUSTIN, Texas (WTXL) - A Texas boy is in the news after selling hot chocolate to help fund President Trump's wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. 

WFTV said a 7-year-old boy wanted to learn more about the wall after watching the State of the Union.  

According to his mom, he came up with the idea to raise the money after they (his parents) explained the issue to him.  

The boy put together his hot coca stand and began selling outside a shopping center in Austin last weekend. 

WFTV stated the fundraiser brought in about $1,400 over two days.
