Pelosi called for more widespread testing for COVID-19 on Thursday after President TrumpDonald John TrumpHR McMaster says president's policy to withdraw troops from Afghanistan is 'unwise' Cast of 'Parks and Rec' reunite for virtual town hall to address Wisconsin voters Biden says Trump should step down over coronavirus response MORE and the White House coronavirus task force announced its plan for a phased reopening of the economy predicated on various criteria being met on a local case-by-case basis.

"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.
