What basic diagnostics have you done?  Checked fuses (both sides), diagnostic codes, battery cables (both ends), pass through the starter relay, is the green wire accidentally unplugged from the solenoid, does the starter have Covid19?

Do the lights come on?  Start with the simple stuff, in this case the battery.  It doesn't take much to power on the electrical system, but once you hit that start button a bad battery won't have the power to engage the starter, much less turn it over.  If the battery is more than a couple years old, have it load tested.

If the battery is good, bypass the start button and use a short jumper wire from the hot lead from the battery to the starter, to the solenoid connector.  If the engine cranks when you do this, it's not the starter or the battery and you'll need to dig deeper into the start button and circuitry.
