Trump stopped air travel in JANUARY - just after this started.

That is completely incorrect. The China travel restrictions were not a complete stoppage at all, and travel from EU countries was not restricted until March.

He proceeded to secure the necessary PPE - and distribute it - from the 'depleted' stockpiles left by the Obama administration that used them but never replenished them after 'swine flu' that killed hundreds of thousands of folks world wide.....

The states were left to fend for themselves with PPE and were bidding against one another. There was zero coordinated effort at the federal level. In addition, Jared Kushner proudly stated that the federal stockpile was not the states' stockpile and was "our" stockpile. With being given a pandemic playbook by the prior administration, why did Trump not spend any effort in the first 3 years of his administration restoring that stockpile? Instead, he made a number of efforts to further reduce our ability to respond to a pandemic.

Now, you were saying???
