I've heard an update on this story; but be cautioned, I don't know how true it is.
Apparently it's not true that anyone banned those words, and certainly not anyone in the Trump government.
It is true that the CDC listed those words as words to be avoided.
The reason why the CDC did that is not out of any inclination toward censorship... rather quite the opposite.
They were recommending that if you want to get your science published without meddling by the anti-science Trump government, you should avoid those words because they trigger the Trumpites. Instead they recommended to use alternative terms and euphemisms to slip things by the conservative idiots.
That's a very different story than the original story... but still a fucking horrible story.
