Has Obama Driven Trump into a Conflict with China?

It appears that US President Barack Obama has implemented, or at least has not opposed or sought to block, legislation to birdcage President-elect Donald Trump on future relations with China. He has “arranged” difficulties for Trump’s future attempts to get along with Beijing.
