Why hasn't anyone responded to Trump's talking point

About the travel ban. It seems reasonable to say that a travel ban that targets only specific area doesn't do a hell of a lot when Covid 19 is spread over the whole world. Plus that ban was swiss cheese.

1. Plus it really was motivated by racism and xenophobia

2. Many people have responded. His ban was nonsense.

It still let 40,000 people travel from China into the US.

3. Yes. That's why I said swiss cheese.

But it also does nothing because the virus was world wide by that time. Just targeting the few Chinese did nothing, when covid was world wide. I have heard no one point that out. Just the swiss cheese argument. In fact, weren't the Chinese rounding the curve by the time he put that ban in?
