Kilmeade says he didn't realize buying Make America Great Again Christmas ornaments after the election in December 2016 was considered a campaign donation. "I had no idea that this would be considered a donation," Kilmeade tells The Hill. "I'm looking for something cool and unique for Christmas for adults after this historic election. (The ornaments were) a little expensive in retrospect, but that was it," he added. "I had no idea that would go to a campaign contribution."
