President Biden suggested that visiting Taiwan was a bad idea and that's what his military advisors told him, but he still allowed Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, the third most powerful person in the United States to visit Taiwan.

I am wondering if the President has the legal authority to prevent the Speaker of the House from making an action that could be considered detrimental to national security, and if visiting Taiwan could be considered to be an action that's detrimental to the national security of the United States under American law.
