Mr Johnson said there are "far better technical solutions" to the Irish border issue.
Environment Secretary Michael Gove - one of the leaders of the official Leave campaign who ran unsuccessfully against Mrs May - also rallied behind the Prime Minister.
"Brexit is a negative negotiation, unfortunately".
