TBoth broadcasters quoted Downing Street as saying Merkel's comments make a deal "essentially impossible".
Arlene Foster, the leader of the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party that supports Johnson's government, accused the EU and Ireland of trying to trap the British province in a permanent customs union.
The spokesman rejected Tusk's blunt accusation that Johnson was playing "some stupid blame game" by having his office leak the detail of private talks.
Using the Latin phrase for "where are you going", He added: "You don't want a deal, you don't want an extension, you don't want to revoke, quo vadis? We are working for a deal with the United Kingdom".
Following a call between Boris Johnson and Angela Merkel, a No 10 source has said that a Brexit deal is "essentially impossible". "Given little political risk premium priced into GBP around current levels, Cable looks vulnerable to $1.21", they said in a note.More news: Alexandria men wanted in killing of witness at Amber Guyger's trial
Mr Macron's ultimatum to Mr Johnson comes as the Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte has tweeted that "important questions remain" to be resolved so as to arrive at a new deal and the European Parliament has said it could not accept the UK' s current proposed solution for the Irish border as laid out in a seven page summary by the United Kingdom government last week.
BRUSSELS-Brexit negotiations between the European Union and United Kingdom descended into acrimony October 8 as both sides blamed each other for ruining any chance of reaching a deal later this month.
"It's not just about trade, it's about so much more than that, and anybody who understands Ireland and the politics of this island understands that", said Irish Deputy Prime Minister Simon Coveney.
Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay said the bloc needed to show "creativity and flexibility" ahead of October 31 - when Johnson has vowed to end the country's 46 years of European Union membership with or without an agreement.
"Boris Johnson will never take responsibility for his own failure to put forward a credible deal. We are working for a deal with the U.K".
"For the United Kingdom to be asked to leave a part of its sovereign territory in a foreign organisation of which the UK would no longer be a part and over which we would have no say whatsoever is beyond insane", she said.More news: Iran opposes Syria military action, Zarif tells Turkey
Scotland's top civil court is due to rule today whether someone else ― possibly a judge ― could sign an extension request if Johnson fails to follow parliament's order to ask for one if there is still no deal by October 19.
Tusk, Merkel and Johnson are slated to spend a long summit meeting together next week to decide on the fate of the Brexit negotiations.
Several EU leaders said they are willing to consider another Brexit delay.
However, the prime minister was supported by eurosceptic politicians who accused Merkel and the European Union of setting unacceptable terms that would effectively separate Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK.
But should a delay still be granted at the European Union summit, Johnson will campaign for a "no-deal" in a snap general election, the Downing Street source told The Spectator, which supports the ruling Conservative party.More news: You Can Now Move Streams Between Google Cast Devices With Your Voice
