"I heard one of them say: 'Well, people will die — or we'll open up the economy and people will die — so that's the lesser of two evils,'" Pelosi said, referring to remarks from a GOP congressman.

"No, it's the greater of two evils to open up the economy in a way that is not science-based, that isn't based on the health and the well-being of the American people," she added.

Pelosi's last appearance on Fox News in July 2017 was also with Wallace. She was the House minority leader at the time.
