To indicate how tense negotiations between the European Union and the United Kingdom have become, Donald Tusk twittered: "I wondered what that special place in hell looks like, for those who promoted #Brexit, without even a sketch of a plan how to implement it safely. "
The comment drew a quick conviction from Brexiteers, with Leave campaigner and former UKIP leader, Nigel Farage tweeting: "After the Brexit we will be free of unelected, arrogant bullies like you and run our own country – Sounds more like heaven for me . "
Host of Good Morning Britain, Piers Morgan, also condemned Tusk's remarks, tweeting: "These EU clowns make me more pro-Brexit every time they open their abusive mouths."
The Irish Prime Minister, Leo Varadkar, who meets with Tusk Wednesday in Brussels, was perhaps not that far away when a microphone picked up his private conversation during a press conference.
"They will give you terrible problems in the British press," said the Irish prime minister.
To which Tusk replied with a smile: "Yes, I know!"
Tusk's comments came when UK Prime Minster Theresa May traveled to Northern Ireland on a mission to find a way forward on the Irish backstop and rescue her withdrawal agreement that was under attack on all sides of Westminster.
Meanwhile, Tusk once again stressed that the withdrawal agreement with the European Union is not open to renegotiation.
"Today, our main task is to prevent a scenario without an appointment," he told the reporters in Brussels on Wednesday.
"I hope that tomorrow, from May onwards, we will get a realistic suggestion on how the impasse can be ended, in which the orderly withdrawal from the EU took place in the House of Commons," he said.
And it does not seem to disappear soon, President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, who told the reporters in Brussels on Wednesday that the device "is not a backstop for the pleasure of a backstop".
"It is necessary for obvious vital reasons and we can not leave the idea," he said.
The clock is now ticking on the departure of Britain from the EU, established on 29 March. But with Westminster steadfast on the backstop and the EU excludes a renegotiated deal, it seems more likely that Britain will leave the block without a deal. than ever.
It is a possibility that the Irish Prime Minister said that he is increasingly "growing." prepared. "We do not want a deal, we think it can be avoided, but we have to prepare ourselves", said Varadkar during the meeting in Brussels.
