Hello, So my problem is that the front brakes are not engaging at all. I’ve tried to bleed them ( with a cheap harbor freight tool may try a different tool ) but no success. when you squeeze the brake lever the lights come on but the brakes do nothing at all to stop the bike. The lever feels loose.

If the above checks out okay, another possibility to investigate...

It can be easier to suck in air (less dense) than push out fluid (more dense). So it's possible to have a leak that produces very little fluid loss while at the same time, rendering the brakes useless. Had such a leak that routinely put air in an automobile cooling system before. (unwittingly cracked the hot radiator by hosing down with a hard jet of cold water)
