WASHINGTON (AP) - Congress is considering letting President Donald Trump roll back some of the just-passed $1.3 trillion federal spending package.

Republicans in the House and Senate home on spring recess are getting hammered politically by conservatives for having approved the big spending bill.

Trump has been talking with Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on the plan over the past couple of days, according to an aide to the House leader.

It is not clear how widely the idea has been embraced by other top Republicans, including Speaker Paul Ryan or Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Congress is on recess until next week.
