I could get it click if I pressed on the trackpad thinking that my battery was expanded and inhibiting the trackpad. But this solution was fleeting and not consistent.

It was my Magic Mouse. I turned it off and the problem was resolved. I had my mouse in a box with some other things that must have accidentally shifted and was pressing on the button. Once I found it and turned the mouse off, everything was fine.
