What does Esther 3:11 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Esther 3:11

And the king said unto Haman, the silver is given unto thee,
&c.] The 10,000 talents of silver Haman proposed to pay into the treasury were returned to him, or the king out of his great munificence refused to take them:

the people also, to do with them as seemeth good unto thee;
that is, the people of the Jews; he gave him full power to do with them as he thought fit, and who breathing revenge upon them, would not spare them.
