Trump reportedly tells CDC: You can't use these 7 words

CDC allegedly banned from using "science-based" and other phrases

President Trump's administration has created a list of no-nos for the CDC.

That phrase was among the seven banned from official documents being prepared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the 2019 federal budget, according to a report.

Policy analysts at the agency were given those instructions during a meeting on Thursday, The Post said, citing people who were there.

In other words, the agency charged with protecting Americans from epidemics and safeguarding the health of the public must now formally avoid saying anything even slightly politically inconvenient to Republicans if it wants funding.

According to CNN, "Alternative word choices reportedly were presented in some cases".

Then, he fell back to earth, failing to rush for more than 79 yards over the next three games before suffering his neck injury. He churned out 134 yards and two touchdowns in his desert debut, and he racked up 314 rushing yards over his first three games.

The Washington Post reported on Friday that Alison Kelly, a senior official in the CDC's Office of Financial Services, revealed the existence of a list of forbidden words during a meeting with staff members responsible for preparing the CDC budget and related material.

If these bans are true, it's in line with unofficial Republican policy of keeping resources away from marginalized populations, like transgender people, the poor, and minorities. The CDC's work on birth defects caused by the Zika virus includes research on the developing fetus. "It was very much, 'Are you serious?" But unless they can convince the administration to lift the ban on those words ASAP, then CDC's officials already have a rewrite to attend to: the White House sent back budget drafts with the words "vulnerable", "entitlement" and "diversity" for correction. The source inside the CDC claims that this directive hasn't yet circulated throughout the organization and expects strong pushback from researchers who "will not lay down quietly". "HHS also strongly encourages the use of outcome and evidence data in program evaluations and budget decisions".

The move additionally provoked inquiries concerning why Trump's organization would need to see less employments of science or confirmation based realities in reports.

The abridged vocabulary for administrators could affect the Center's recommendations for the handling of populations such as transgender people that are statistically more vulnerable to sexually transmitted diseases. "HHS will continue to use the best scientific evidence available to improve the health of all Americans".
