In other news, North Korea stole $2 billion for their nuclear weapons program through cyberattacks on banks and crypto-currency exchanges according to a new report from the UN.

Meanwhile, Trump says he will implement a third bailout for farmers in 2020.

Finally, it looks like a business deal to save a GM plant in Ohio touted by Trump earlier this year may not happen because the company that was suppose to keep the plant running has no money.

The plan met immediate skepticism, and Workhorse’s second-quarter earnings report Tuesday further doused the optimism. The electric-truck maker’s sales, never really robust at any point in its 12-year history, totaled all of $6,000 in the quarter. That’s about $70 a day, give or take. The company’s stock plunged, sinking as much as 35% and dropping its market value to less than $200 million. [...]

During a July 2017 rally in nearby Youngstown, Trump told supporters “don’t move, don’t sell your house,” because his administration would bring jobs back and fill up the area’s factories. But by November of last year, GM announced plans to stop production, costing Lordstown the last of the roughly 4,500 direct jobs the plant provided just a few years ago.
