QUEBEC — Evidence from Alexandre Bissonnette’s computer presented in court Monday indicates the Quebec mosque shooter was obsessed with U.S. President Donald Trump, Muslims, Dylann Roof, mass shootings and feminists.

Bissonnette was checking Trump’s Twitter feed and reading news about Trump on a daily basis, according to evidence presented at his sentencing hearing in Quebec City.

Also on Bissonnette’s laptop was a selfie of Bissonnette wearing a Trump hat, prosecutor Thomas Jacques told the court.

A 45-page report detailing the contents of his computer was presented by the prosecution on Monday, the fourth day of Bissonnette’s sentencing hearing.

Bissonnette, 28, killed six men on Jan. 29, 2017 when he went on a shooting rampage in a Quebec City mosque. He pleaded guilty last month to six counts of first-degree murder and six of attempted murder.

Last week, for the first time, the court heard a motive for the attack from Bissonnette.

In a video recording of Bissonnette’s three-hour interrogation shown at the sentencing hearing on Friday, he told police the decision by the Canadian government to accept more refugees spurred his decision to shoot people at the Quebec City mosque.

A day before the Jan. 29, 2017 attack, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had tweeted: “To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada”

That tweet was in response to Trump’s decision on Jan. 27, 2017, to impose travel restrictions on people from seven Muslim-majority countries.

“The same themes come up repeatedly (in Bissonnette’s computer): firearms, mass shootings, the question of Islam and feminism, and the mosque” where the attack occurred, prosecutor Thomas Jacques said Monday.

Bissonnette had images of the interior and exterior of the mosque on his computer. He had also repeatedly checked the Facebook page of the mosque and its website in the month before the attack.

He researched statistics showing the percentage of people from various religions in countries around the world, and the number of immigrants in those countries.

He also consulted repeatedly Facebook pages of feminist and Muslim groups at Université Laval, where he had been a student until a few weeks earlier.

On the day of the attack, Bissonnette watched a YouTube video about Glock handguns, the type of firearm he used in the attack.

The contents of the computer reveal that in the days before the attack Bissonnette was almost daily watching videos and reading about Dylann Roof, who murdered nine black churchgoers in a South Carolina church in 2015.

He also spent time online researching Marc Lépine, the man responsible for the massacre at Montreal’s École Polytechnique that left 14 women dead in 1989; and the mass shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado in which two teens killed 13 people in 1999.

The maximum sentence Bissonnette could face is 150 years — consecutive 25-year sentences for each of the six first-degree murder convictions. Bissonnette’s lawyer has said he will recommend a sentence of 25 years.
