I am all for talking about things. But gifts, no matter the value, is not corruption. The problem with gifts is that they tend to lead towards corruption. The question is did they in this circumstance. If someone gives Duterte $100 million because they like what Duterte is doing, and they get no special treatment, what wrongdoing occurred?
What if someone offered you $100 million as a gift to take care of your mother which you were already doing anyways? You are getting paid to do what you already thought was right and would do for free.
