Pelosi to appear on ‘Fox News Sunday’ for first time since 2017
Fox News anchor Chris Wallace will interview Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday, marking her first interview on the network since 2017, according to a release from Fox.
Pelosi will join “Fox News Sunday” to “discuss the current state of the U.S. amid the coronavirus pandemic, negotiations to revive the small business loan program and much more,” per the network.
Wallace has scored several interviews with top Democrats in recent months, including the party’s presumptive presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden; Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.); former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg; House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.).
Pelosi called for more widespread testing for COVID-19 on Thursday after President Trump 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.
