#1 To approach a problem from all sides/ all angles of attack/ full coverage

#2 To approach a binary problem from all sides (still makes sense)

#3 Make it critical and slightly pejorative

#4 To approach glibly (play) a binary problem (equation) from all sides (all sides of the equation — is an oxymoron).

#5 Also leaving the connotation that said problem (equation) already has a predetermined outcome. You can play with the numbers on either side but x will turn out to have the same value.

This is of course charitable to Trump in assuming that he isn't just careless with his language.

(yes, I am aware that fiddles are an anachronism)

By definition, aren't "all sides" of the equation, um, equal?
