President Donald Trump said again that Apple planned to build new plants in the U.S. States in a speech at the White House touting the economy on Friday. However, the tech giant hasn’t announced plans to build factories in the US of A.

Intel’s latest earnings report has shown 15% year-on-year growth for the second quarter of the 2018 financial year. That’s the good news. The bad: 10nm processors aren’t going to arrive on shelves until late 2019.
