The controversial comment came during a press conference with the Irish Taoiseach Leo Vardkar, the day before a crucial meeting with Theresa May.
Tusk's biblical take on Brexit sparked debate with some feeling that he stepped over the line, while others felt that it was an accurate take on just how badly Brexit has been handled.
For the EU, the fire and brimstone themed portrait of Brexit didn't end there.
A few hours later, Guy Verhofstadt, the EU's Brexit negotiator, tweeted that he was unsure whether some key Brexiteers would even be allowed into the underworld for fear that they would somehow manage to divide that too.
Well, I doubt Lucifer would welcome them, as after what they did to Britain, they would even manage to divide hell 🙂 https://t.co/AS367egjZP
