The video, which was released this week, was part of an effort to raise awareness about the DeVos family’s wealth and influence on the education system.
The video was posted on a Facebook page called Betsy DeVos: The Greatest Teacher Ever and featured clips from a 2016 documentary about the family.
It was created by the Center for American Progress Action Fund, a liberal nonprofit focused on promoting public policy that was established by former President Barack Obama.
“We believe that our children’s education is one of the most important public investments we can make, and we need to invest in that right now,” Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said in a statement about the video.
The DeVos family, the second wealthiest family in the United States, has deep pockets.
Their assets include $10 billion worth of real estate, a stake in Walmart and a stake of General Motors.
They own stakes in General Motors and a portfolio of other companies, including Walmart.
In 2016, the Trump campaign paid $25,000 for a video about the Trumps and their family, according to the Center.
A family that is so financially connected has become a magnet for liberal donors.
The Washington Post reported in December that Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has a stake worth $3.6 billion in the company, which owns the real estate company Trump is married to, according a review of tax documents.
The family also owns stakes in Walmart, which has more than a million employees.
A group of philanthropic organizations called Progress Now has been calling for DeVos to be tapped to lead the Department of Education.
Progress Now, which describes itself as “a leading nonprofit advocacy group dedicated to building the future of America’s schools,” was formed by former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel in 2014.
The group has been lobbying against DeVos.
ProgressNow called DeVos “a woman of enormous courage and vision.”
During her confirmation hearing, DeVos said she wanted to “end a cycle of division and division that is fueling violence, poverty, and anxiety.”
She also noted that in her time as head of the American Federation for Children, she focused on reducing bullying and reducing violence against children.
The Trump administration has said DeVos’ experience at the Department is the best qualified for the job.
DeVos was confirmed in February by the Senate, and she will take up her job in April.
