The Associated Press published on 27 July 2015 an article titled "Chinese State Media Snipe at Obama's Africa Trip" by Christopher Boldeen. One of the apparent themes in China's state media suggests that the trip to Africa by President Obama is a response to China's growing relations with Africa. In fact, this is probably about number 15 on the list of reasons why Obama is visiting Africa. The Obama visit is not about US-China competition in Africa but about improving US relations with Africa for many reasons.
