Former CIA operations officer Valerie Plame Wilson has started a crowdfunding campaign to kick President Donald Trump off of Twitter with little support, The Washington Free Beacon reports. 

Plame Wilson, who was a covert officer for the CIA until she was outed in a 2003 leak, announced the GoFundMe "Let's #BuyTwitter and #BanTrump" on Aug. 16 with an end goal of raising $1 billion to buy controlling shares of the site and ban Trump. So far she's only raised $3,000 in five days. 

If the campaign fails to reach its goal, Plame Wilson said she would "explore options for buying a significant stake in the company and champion this proposal at the annual shareholder meeting."

Twitter currently holds a stock price of about 16 cents per share, with 731 million outstanding shares.

"Donald Trump has done a lot of horrible things on Twitter," Wilson wrote on the GoFundMe page. "From emboldening white supremacists to promoting violence against journalists, his tweets damage the country and put people in harm's way."
