In what could be his first move as president, Joe Biden changed the Twitter title from the U.S. Ambassador to Israel to U.S. Ambassador to Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza, giving credibility to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip and Palestinian Authority.

Florida Senator Rick Scott tweeted his disgust over the change, stating "there is no country of West Bank or Gaz, only territories that Israel hs been willing for decades to negotiate sovereignty over has been met with only hostility and terrorism.

Sen. Scott adds that Biden'ss move "shows the Democrats' hostility to Israel."

Could President Biden's next move be to move the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem back to Tel Aviv?

*** UPDATE — The Biden Administration has now changed the Twitter handle back to U.S. Ambassador to Israel.
