Boris Johnson claims he didn't say anything about Turkey in the EU referendum campaign. Here's his joint letter with Michael Gove to Downing Street, seven days before the referendum.
The Daily Express, 18 April 2016.

He [Boris Johnson] said: "I am very pro-Turkish but what I certainly can't imagine is a situation in which 77million of my fellow Turks and those of Turkish origin can come here without any checks at all. That is mad - that won't work."
In fact - the former Turkish PM Binali Yıldırım - was even asked about Johnson's remarks shortly after the referendum, in July 2016.

"May God help him and reform him, and I hope he won't make any more mistakes and tries to make it up with the Turks."

More you say? Here's the official Vote Leave referendum campaign's Twitter account quoting Boris Johnson on Andrew Marr just 18 days before the referendum.
...so I think we can all reach the conclusion that his claim was demonstrably false.
