Once again we see the Trump effect. There is no question the current occupant of the White House is a catalyst for racial violence worldwide:
In January of 2017 Alexandre Bissonnette killed six people and wounded 19 others in a Quebec mosque. At his sentencing hearing Monday, prosecutors revealed he was, as the Montreal Gazette describes, “obsessed” with President Donald Trump, and checked the tweets of dozens of right wing pundits, right wing news organizations, right wing websites daily, members of the “alt-right,” and Trump daily.
Bissonnette also “was reading news about the U.S. president on a daily basis,” and in addition to Trump was also “obsessed” with Muslims, Dylann Roof, mass shootings and feminists. He reportedly held far right and white nationalist views.
