UPDATE:

The director of the CDC clarified that they were not banned by the Trump Administration from using these words. Internally, they made the decision that these are the Trump Admin's "trigger words", so they should avoid using them.

Basically, they were making a cagey move to get their policy and budget through, but it got misinterpreted and the misinterpretation went publicly viral.
