Barack Obama played the anti-China card beloved of US presidential candidates, covering his flank against the more direct Beijing bashing of his Republican foe Mitt Romney.

Obama announced in Ohio, a swing state and an engine of the American auto industry, that his government had filed a World Trade Organization complaint against tariffs on 3 billion do0llars of US autos entering China.

Officials denied he was playing politics -- but criticizing the Asian giant is an easy applause line as voters chafe at the flight of US jobs abroad.
