Congressman Trent Franks

Representing the 8th District of Arizona


I am committed to protecting America’s national security and all of humanity from Jihadist terrorism.

We must be ever vigilant to the threats we, and our allies, face in the world around us. Iran is quickly mastering their nuclear program. North Korea is doing the same. Radical Islamists seek to cause great unrest in the Middle East, ensuring that governments are toppled, and then installing their own leaders in the aftermath. Islamic Jihad has crossed our very own borders and threatens our way of life and the freedoms we hold so dear. Our electric grid remains vulnerable to both naturally occurring and weaponized electromagnetic pulse. All of this is extremely troubling in the world we live in today.

To maintain a solid national defense, the United States of America must do three things: we must continue to hold to our beliefs that made us such a great nation in the first place; we must be able to define terror for what it really is, being ready to call out a rogue nation or group that might be engaging in detrimental activity to freedom anywhere in the world, willing to go to any step to eradicate that threat; and we must secure and defend our border as soon and as efficiently as possible.
