trip someone up

Hi all! My friend wrote:

Lily asked Jason why he didn't hand in his assignment on time. Jason was annoyed and misunderstood her.
Lily said: "I don't try to trip you up, but try to help. "

Regarding the pink text, my friend wants to say " I don't try to get a hold on you/I don't try to have something on you". Do you think the pink text means the same?
