A Denver company that supplies voting machines across the United States pushed back Thursday against claims — shared without evidence — from President Donald Trump that millions of votes in his favor had been deleted.

Trump lost the 2020 presidential election by tens of thousands of votes in key swing states like Pennsylvania which tipped the electoral college victory in favor of Joseph R. Biden. The president, however, has refused to concede the race and has shared baseless claims that the election was instead stolen from him.

Thursday morning Trump said on Twitter that the Denver-based company, Dominion Voting, deleted 2.7 million votes cast for him across the country and changed 221,000 votes cast in Pennsylvania for him to favor Biden.

“Dominion Voting Systems categorically denies any claims about any vote switching or alleged software issues with our voting systems,” a company spokesperson said in a statement to The Denver Post. “Our systems continue to reliably and accurately count ballots, and state and local election authorities have publicly confirmed the integrity of the process.”
