The family – which includes Betsy DeVos, Trump's education secretary – has been a regular donor to the Michigan Freedom Fund, which helped promote a Michigan protest against the state's stay-at-home orders in mid-April.

That rally, which saw about 3,000 people descend on the state's capitol building, in Lansing, sparked a slew of other protests in states, and an endorsement from Trump.

But the DeVoses' donations to the Michigan Freedom Fund – more than half a million dollars over the past four years, including from Betsy DeVos herself – are the tip of an iceberg of support for conservative causes.
