What president gave Florida back to Spain even after Jackson had overthrown the Spanish geverment?

There are two problems with this question: First, Florida (east and west) have been a part of the US since 1821 when Spain ceded it in under the administration of President James Monroe through The Adams-Onís Treaty of 1819 (named for Secretary of State John Quincy Adams and Spanish Foreign Minister Luis de Onís who negotiated the treaty). Second, Andrew Jackson did nothing in Florida other than to lead military units against the Seminoles during the First Seminole War. President Monroe sent Jackson to lead actions against the Seminole in December 1817, and to prevent slaves running to freedom in Florida. Jackson exceeded his orders and messaged Monroe: "the possession of the Floridas would be desirable to the United States, and in sixty days it will be accomplished." Historians assert that Monroe's directives to Jackson were purposefully vague to provide him plausible deniability on the international stage. Jackson never personally claimed any land for the US. The only states that were admitted to the union during Jackson's presidency (1829-1837) were Arkansas (15 June 1836), and Michigan (26 January 1837). While the argument can be made that President Monroe intended for Jackson to be significantly annoying to the Spanish in Florida with the intent of acquiring the territory, the land of Florida was never given back to Spain or any other nation once it was acquired by the US.
