Representing the 8th District of Arizona

FREEDOM

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.

As the Obama Administration continues to ignore the growing, existential threat posed by Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) technology in the hands of a terrorist enemy such as Iran and ISIS or in the hands of a more conventionally armed but equally psychotic North Korea, and in light of the Senate Democrats’ continued intransigence in blocking important Homeland Security legislation, it is incumbent upon the United States Congress to double-down on our proven Missile Defense technology.

A resurgent Russia, in their increasingly successful attempt to supplant American leadership in the Middle East, is exacting a terrible toll on innocent victims in Syria. 

February 25, 2016 Press Release

 

WASHINGTON, D.C.- As the field for the 2016 GOP Presidential Nominee continues to narrow, Congressman Trent Franks, suggesting that a combined Presidential ticket of Senators Cruz and Rubio may be the only way to win in November, released the following endorsement:

"Senators Cruz and Rubio* both have proven full spectrum conservative records and I call upon them to join forces and establish a joint ticket in pursuit of the Presidency and Vice Presidency of the United States and I whole heartedly endorse them both to that end.

Years from now, historians will write with confusion and wonder that Wendy Sherman, architect of the North Korean nuclear deal under President Clinton, was employed by the Obama Administration to negotiate the Iranian nuclear deal. 

February 3, 2016 Trent's Blog

The President’s abdication of his Constitutional duties and studious dismissal of the historical lessons of defeating the Nazis, the Fascists, and the Evil Empire, has manifested in terrible consequences for U.S domestic and foreign policy, and ultimately, our national security. Instead of protecting American interests, an Administration wracked by self-doubt disarms, withdrawals, and apologizes. As a result, the insidious threats around the globe are growing in power and lethality. In the East, China continues to escalate.
