'Won't budge an inch' nghĩa là không động đậy, không nhúc nhích; ngoài ra còn nghĩa bóng là không thay đổi ý định, ý đã quyết -> không suy chuyển/lay chuyển.

Ví dụ
Russia Won't Budge an Inch on Islands Japan Claims.

She is the one who is demanding her own way and held up the pay for the government workers, as she has a vendetta (mối thù truyền kiếp, mối thù máu; sự thù địch gay gắt, cuộc bất hòa kéo dài) against Trump and won’t budge an inch in negotiations to settle this dilemma. Contact your congressmen to have Pelosi start negotiating a very necessary border wall.

The behaviour of Chinese officials at the recent Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Papua New Guinea reportedly barging (xâm nhập, đột nhập) into the foreign minister's office, to try to cut mildly critical language on trade from a final communique (thông cáo chung), seemed intended to signal that China won't budge an inch on United States demands.
