JOE Biden has fired a Brexit warning shot at Boris Johnson by declaring he does not want to see a so-called hard Irish border.
The US President-elect spoke out as he revealed he had already discussed the tricky issue with the British PM and other European leaders.
"We do not want a guarded border," he told reporters last night. "We want to make sure we work hard to get Ireland worked out.
"I've talked with the British prime minister; I've talked with the Taoiseach; I've talked with others and I've talked with the French.
"The idea of having the border north and south once again being closed, it's just not right. We've just got to keep the border open."
He discussed Brexit with the British PM earlier this month during one of his first phone calls to other world leaders as president-elect.
Back then he warned his British counterpart that Brexit must not jeopardize the Northern Ireland peace process.
