Notorious mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger, spent the last months of his life writing letters that reveal his repeated praise for President Donald Trump. NBC News reported Saturday that Bulger wrote letters to various recipients about his support for Trump and the anger he had towards the news media, which he argued would attack the president while helping Democrats.

“Trump is tough and fights back instead of bowing down to pressure – and caving in to press! U.S. agrees with him press attacking and his reaction increases his popularity – He has my vote so far,” Bulger wrote last August, almost two years after Trump’s election.

Bulger also went after another target in his letters: Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Mueller was involved in a two-year investigation into the Trump campaign and Russian election interference which concluded earlier this year.

A month before his death, Bulger wrote in another letter, “Trump is experiencing what Mueller and company can orchestrate. Mueller should observe biblical saying –  ‘Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.'”


Bulgar passed away last fall after being killed in his prison cell, shortly after being transferred to the West Virginia facility. He was facing life sentences for 11 murders along with other charges. Bulger was reportedly killed by two inmates, including a former mob hitman.
