This means Trump's efforts were a "full court press". NOT an errant utterance of a misplaced word.
Not possible that Pence did not read his daily briefing book etc., because of Trump's record of breaking new scandals on days that end in "Y". If you must be careful of what you say, to steer clear of trouble, in an administration that routinely explodes into chaos daily, you must try to be aware of everything you possibly can. Of course, this wouldn't be the first time Pence was caught lying to the nation, would it?
