WASHINGTON, June 21 (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden on Tuesday brushed off criticism from Chevron Corp's chief executive about Biden's demand for energy producers to expand refinery capacity, saying the executive is being too sensitive.

“I didn’t know they’d get their feelings hurt that easily," Biden told reporters when asked about a letter from Chevron CEO Mike Wirth.
