Johnson said there would be “a necessity to act” if the EU doesn't agree to overhaul post-Brexit trade rules that he says are destabilizing Northern Ireland's delicate political balance. Johnson held private talks with the leaders of Northern Ireland's main political parties, urging them to get back to work. (Liam McBurney/Pool via AP)
