Cayetano who also chairs the the Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee in a press conference during the inspection of the SEA games sports facilities at the New Clark City in Capas, Tarlac,pointed out that when he was Senate Majority Leader, the Aquino administration asked for a PHP10-billion budget to host the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in Manila in 2015.
"Ang sinasabi ko lang yung hypocrisy na nung PHP10 billion ang hiningi nila sa Kongreso, para sa APEC, para sa bayan ito, representasyon ito, karangalan ito (What I am saying is the hypocrisy that when they asked Congress for PHP10 billion for the APEC, it was for the country, for representation, for honor). We have to spend on known artists and singers. We have to serve good food para maganda representasyon (for good representation),"Cayetano said.

"'Yun nakita nila at justified nila pero yung PHP50-million na priceless work of art na forever pagmamay-ari ng gobyerno, sasabihin nila sana 50 classrooms na lang (They recognized and justified that, but for the PHP50-million priceless work of art that will be forever owned by the government, they are saying we should have 50 classrooms instead)," Speaker Cayetano said.
Cayetano further lashes out Aquino in saying that instead of criticizing the Duterte administration, it would have been better if the former president was proud that his home province of Tarlac was the main venue of the international event.
"I was expecting na sasabihin niya na may issues, pag-usapan natin later, pero proud kaming mga Kapampangan na dito itinayo sa Tarlac (that he will say that there are issues, let’s talk about it later, but we Pampangueños are proud that the facilities were built in Tarlac),” Cayetano said.

“E hindi eh, 'yung crab mentality pa rin. Akala nila SEA Games, seafood, kaya panay crab mentality, talangka ang inaabot natin (But no, it’s still the crab mentality. They thought the SEA games is seafood, that’s why it’s always crab mentality, we only get crabs),” he said.
