Creflo Dollar: I did not endorse Donald Trump
However, as Morning News USA found out, the above report was not true and the quotes were only fabricated by a website named Biz Standard News.
Dollar did not spoke in any of Donald Trump’s rally.
Vic Bolton, Dollar’s spokesman, told Atlanta Journal Constitution that there is no truth to the report.
Dollar has also released a statement accordingly.
“Any reports stating that I have endorsed Donald Trump for President are false. At World Changers Church International, I nor the ministry endorse any political party or candidate; nor do we advise our members who to vote for. Any claims or statements claiming otherwise are false. This rumor originated on a satirical website and is 100% untrue.”

Dollar is the man who in 2015 initiated a campaign to call for his congregation to buy a $65 million Gulfstream G650 jet, according to The Root. This came in the wake of an incident wherein Dollar’s private jet experienced engine failure while he was traveling.
“We are asking members, partners and supporters of this ministry to assist in the undertaking of an initiative called Project G650,” as was stated on CrefloDollarMinistries.org. “The mission of Project G650 is to acquire a Gulfstream G650 airplane so that Pastors Creflo and Taffi and World Changers Church International can continue to blanket the globe with the Gospel of grace.”
