What is the meaning of "yet" in the sentence below? Overall, what does the statement mean ?

The final evening amounted to the clearest attempt yet to reverse the hardening impressions among Americans that Trump mishandled the pandemic and has behaved like a bully during his term.

Hi, Joshua,

It's difficult to explain the meaning of some words in isolation, and "yet" is one of them.

For you to understand, that sentence means that, so far, all the attempts to reverse the negative image of Trump have been unsuccessful. The attempt made on the mentioned final evening has been the clearest one to try and achieve that result, that is, to improve the impression Americans have of Trump.
