The Obama administration filed a trade complaint against China on Tuesday over access to the Asian giant’s market for U.S. chicken, the latest friction point in an election year that is casting a harsh light on U.S. economic ties with China.

The skirmish comes as the Obama administration steps up enforcement of trade rules in hopes of winning more congressional support for its signature Pacific trade agreement.
