Chelsea Clinton fired back at Boothe in a tweet Saturday, saying she’s “never doubted” she was the most important part of her mom’s life.

“No, she wouldn't. I've never doubted & always known I was the most important part of her life,” Chelsea Clinton said. “Now as a mom I'm even more grateful to my mom.”

Chelsea Clinton has frequently used her Twitter account in recent months to defend her mother, criticize President Trump and quash rumors that she’s running for public office.
