(CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, appearing on CNN with Anderson Cooper on Friday, said that President Trump “has been a failure in every way” when asked about his response to COVID-19.

“Should the American people listen to anything the President says at this point regarding coronavirus and, if not, who should they listen to?” Cooper asked Pelosi.

“No, the fact is is that the president has been a failure in every way, right from the start: his denial--calling it a hoax--his delay and all the rest have gotten us into a very bad place,” said Pelosi.

She then went on to say that he was “messing with our children” when it comes to resuming school in the fall.  

“But we want to go forward and where we go from here is not to listen to the president because he doesn't listen to the scientists,” she said. 

“It's very, very sad. And, now, he's messing with our children,” she said. “We all want our children to go back to school, but we want them to go to school safely. And that's an absolute must for every parent and for every teacher in our country."

Here is a transcript of the part of Pelosi’s interview with Anderson Cooper where she said that Trump “has been a failure in every way”:

Anderson Cooper: "Madam Speaker, President Trump claims, ‘We're in a good place,’ those were his words, ‘in this pandemic.’  He’s pushing, obviously, for schools to reopen, but says the CDC guidelines are too tough, expensive and impractical, hasn’t been to a coronavirus taskforce briefing since April and Dr. Fauci, now, says he hasn't seen the President in more than a month and hasn't directly briefed him in more than two months.  Should the American people listen to anything the President says at this point regarding coronavirus and, if not, who should they listen to?

Nancy Pelosi: No, the fact is is that the President has been a failure in every way, right from the start: his denial – calling it a hoax – his delay and all the rest have gotten us into a very bad place.  

But we want to go forward and where we go from here is not to listen to the President because he doesn't listen to the scientists.  It's very, very sad.  And, now, he's messing with our children.  We all want our children to go back to school, but we want them to go to school safely.  And that's an absolute must for every parent and for every teacher in our country."
