In a press conference on Friday, Cayetano said that the allegation of Trillanes was a “figment of imagination”.
"Kung tingin ni Senator Trillanes ako ang problema, di sabay kaming mag resign kahit bukas. Kasi ako baligtad ang tingin ko, tingin ko sya ang problema sa Senado e,” Cayetano said.
Trillanes replied to Cayetano via text message saying: “Sya na muna kasi sya yung nangako na magre-resign kung hindi maso -solve yung crime, corruption at illegal drugs within three to six months.”
Cayetano said that he might resign anyway if President Rodrigo Duterte would ask him to help his administration.
He also said that the Senate presidency was already being given to him before but he refused it because he did not want Liberal Party senators to be part of the majority, specially Senator Leila de Lima.
“So sabi ko kay Senator Koko, pare kung gusto mo pipirma ako, magre-resign ako ng Senate tutal tutulong ako sa Pangulo at pagdating ng middle ng 2017 kukunin ako ng ating Pangulo para tumulong sa kanya,” Cayetano said.
“If ako ang problema, and you don’t want me in the Senate…Sabi nya (Pimentel), pare walang ganun, you’re welcome here, kelangan ka namin, tulong- tulong tayo,” he added.
Cayetano said it would be “useless” to snatch the Senate presidency from Pimentel if he would join the Duterte administration after five or six months.
“It’s useless, sisirain ko lang ang pangalan ko kasi wala akong magagawa (I would just ruin my reputation because I won’t be able to achieve anything) within five months. I wanted it when I thought I had 12 months (in the Senate),” he further said.
Instead of saying nonsense, Cayetano urged Trillanes to do something “very productive” for the administration.
