The testimony was that Trump was told they didn't have the clearance to go to the Capitol, they had to return to the West Wing. The POTUS is not the ultimate power who does as he pleases. He is the Head of State. The responsibility for his security does not fall on him, but neither can he push it away so he can go to the mall, if he wants to; or to Coney Island in the summer.
