"We have a great new deal that takes control – now Parliament has to make Brexit on Saturday so we can move on to other priorities such as cost of living, the NHS, violence and crime," Johnson tweeted, citing National Health service.
UK lawmakers have passed a law requiring Johnson to request to delay Brexit after the October 31 deadline if a deal to ease the exit is not available by Saturday.
"Where there is will, there is #deal ̵
1; we have one! This is a fair and balanced agreement for the EU and the UK, and it is a testament to our commitment to finding solutions, ”European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker wrote on Twitter.
Earlier in the day, the leader of the Democratic Party in Northern Ireland, Unionist Party Arlene Foster, said he could not support this proposal.
Johnson decided to move forward even though he was unable to get the party on board, increasing the likelihood that it could collapse quickly in London, as a previous deal had been done by Johnson's predecessor Theresa May.
If there is a vote on the deal in parliament on Saturday, Johnson will face a huge uproar. Since becoming prime minister, Johnson's working majority has gone from one to minus 43, which means he will need the support of other parties to get the agreement.
The statement still stands, a party spokesman said.
If Johnson is unable to lead the Northern Ireland Party aside, then he will need support from other parties, which seems unlikely. Jeremy Corbin, leader of the Labor Party, said Thursday's known deal was an "even worse deal" than May's.

"The discussions in the last days have sometimes been difficult. But we delivered and delivered together, ”said E.U. Brexit chief negotiator Michel Barnier.
Johnson tells Junker that "he has faith in his ability to convince the majority he needs in the House of Commons," Barnier said.
Under the deal, Britain will withdraw from the European Union but will continue to apply EU rules until the end of 2020 in a transitional period that would ease the split. EU. and British negotiators, meanwhile, will try to pull off a trade deal and other elements of their future relationship. The transitional period may be extended to two years if both parties agree.
According to people informed during the talks, Johnson was ready to make concessions in the interest of fulfilling his promise to free Britain from the European Union this month.
The hardest part of the conversation has always been the border between the Republic of Ireland, which remains in the European Union, and Northern Ireland, which leaves E.U. together with the rest of the UK.
Movement without borders is a key part of the Good Friday Agreement, which put an end to decades of violence in the region, but was challenged by Brexit.
