Creflo A. Dollar might get that $65 million jet after all, according to the Washington Post. Dollar launched a crowd funding campaign a couple of months ago, urging people to donate so that he could raise the money to buy the jet that he claimed he needed in order to continue spreading his ministry.
The jet, known as the Gulfstream G650, is said to be the jet to have. Billionaires are on waiting lists for years just to be able to purchase the luxury private jet. Dollar got much criticism for soliciting money and eventually yanked the fundraising campaign. However, Creflo Dollar Ministries released a statement saying that it will eventually buy the jet at a “time of its choosing.”
“We wholeheartedly reject the notion that the ministry’s airplane project is an imposition on our community or that it somehow takes advantage of our people,” said Dollar’s spokes people in a statement. “We plan to acquire a Gulfstream G650 because it is the best, and it is a reflection of the level of excellence at which this organization chooses to operate.”
Still seems like a frivolous purchase, but ok.
