British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is getting mixed messages from European leaders on Brexit.
French President Emmanuel Macron says Europe won’t be held hostage to Britain’s democratic crisis, warning a no-deal Brexit was the most likely outcome.
But German Chancellor Angela Merkel was more optimistic, giving Johnson a 30-day deadline to find a solution.
Johnson wants to get rid of the so-called “backstop” which keeps the UK in a customs union indefinitely.
