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

The Trump administration reportedly told agencies within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to avoid using certain words or phrases in official documents being drafted for next year's budget.

Michael Halpern, the deputy director of the Center for Science and Democracy, said "effectively tackling public health challenges means being honest and open about risks and who faces these risks". On the list: "diversity", "fetus", "transgender", "vulnerable", "entitlement", "science-based" and "evidence-based".

In some instances, the analysts were given alternative phrases. For example, instead of "evidence-based" or "science-based", staff could use the "suggested" wording that the "CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes".

HHS spokesman Matt Lloyd told the Post that the department "will continue to use the best scientific evidence available to improve the health of all Americans". "You must be able to acknowledge the humanity of transgender people in order to address their health care needs". The CDC analyst told the Post people at the meeting reacted with shock and disbelief.

The CDC, along with other federal agencies, submits its budget proposals to the Office of Management and Budget.

At the CDC, several offices have responsibilities for work that uses some of these words.

The report also claims that Ozil has made it "plain" to friends that he favours a move to Manchester United in the new year. Ivory Coast worldwide Eric Bailly is set to undergo surgery on his ankle and will most of the season.

And the CDC's National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention refers on its website to the importance of its mission of "addressing the health needs of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender".

"You can not fight against the Zika virus, or improve women's and fetal health, if you are unable to use the word "fetus.' You must be able to talk about science and evidence if you are to research cures for infectious diseases such as Ebola", Singiser said".

The ban is related to the budget and supporting materials that are to be given to CDC's partners and to Congress, the analyst said.

The OMB did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment Friday night.

Analysts were reportedly "incredulous" upon being briefed on the banned words. "This hasn't trickled down to them yet".

The CDC has a budget of about US$7 billion ($10b) and more than 12,000 employees working across the nation and around the globe on everything from food and water safety to heart disease and cancer to infectious disease outbreak prevention. "But we know that the signal to the agency is much stronger than that. Are you kidding?'" the analyst told the Post.
