In a Vox explainer which begs explaining, Brent Sasley twists himself into a pickle over "creeping annexation" versus "substantive change." Interviewer Jen Kirby stumbles on the "return" of West Bank land to Palestinians and the duo erase Palestinian Authority control in the West Bank Areas A and B.
Contrary to The New York Times report, Israeli settlers did not criticize the Trump plan for not "annex[ing] enough Palestinian land." Indeed, the West Bank land in question is disputed and is not currently under Palestinian control, nor was it ever.
