(Scroll down for video) The worst serial killer in the history of Japan, said that he drew inspiration from U.S. President Donald Trump, who talked about happiness and sadness in the world.

27-year-old Satoshi Uematsu of Sagamihara, broke into a healthcare facility where he went on a murder spree.

Uematsu admitted to the killings, and said that his goal was to eliminate the sources of unhappiness in the world. He said that he made his decision after listening to speeches by Trump and following ISIS.

Uematsu wrote that just like Trump is trying to increase happiness in the world, he too was attempting to bring relief to those families, suffering from loved ones with severe disabilities.

Sagamihara police said that they have arrested Uematsu, after being accused of killing 19 mentally disabled patients and wounding 25 others.

Uematsu has been charged with numerous counts of murder, attempted murder and assault.

According to the police investigation, Uematsu used to work at the Tsukui Yamayuri-En mental health facility.

Before the attack, Uematsu boasted that he could kill 470 people with disabilities in the facility in one night.

Uematsu wanted to legalize euthanasia for mentally disturbed patients who are not able to live at home and be active in society.

He also urged lawmakers and wrote letters to them, seeking their help.

Several months ago, Uematsu was admitted to a hospital after he expressed a willingness to kill people with severe disabilities.

He was released after a doctor felt he had improved.

Uematsu lived near the mental health facility, and was described as an educated man who always greeted people with a smile.

He told police that he stabbed the victims because he wanted the mentally disabled to disappear and eliminate the sources of sadness in the world.
