Donald Trump’s reported banning of seven words attacked by Democrats

He is clearly aware of devious use of language by Leftists and has given the CDC good advice not to use such language in budget documents that have to pass muster among Republican congressmen.  You can see how pro-life Republicans would bridle at any use of the word "fetus", for instance.  So the advice refers to budget documents only.  Note that even during the Obama administration, C.D.C. officials were required to clear most statements through Health and Human Services.

DONALD Trump has come under fire after reports emerged of his administration wanting to ban seven words from official budget documents.

Policy analysts from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have reportedly told of how they are being told to stop using words including: “diversity,” “foetus,” “transgender,” “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “science-based” and “evidence-based.”

The CDC, a US federal agency, is America’s leading national public health institute.

The seven-word ban, reported by The Washington Post, came from a 90-minute briefing on Thursday this week.

They were reportedly given alternative words to use in some cases. According to The Washington Post, a source said that instead of using the words “evidence-based” or “science-based,” an analyst could say “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes.”

The source reportedly told The Washington Post that those in the briefing were shocked at the suggestion.

The words have reportedly been banned from documents that will come out in February next year.

However, Health and Human Services spokesman Matt Lloyd disputed The Washington Post report in a statement to CNN.

“The assertion that HHS has ‘banned words’ is a complete mischaracterization of discussions regarding the budget formulation process,” Lloyd said.

“HHS will continue to use the best scientific evidence available to improve the health of all Americans. HHS also strongly encourages the use of outcome and evidence data in program evaluations and budget decisions.”
