Ivanka and Lance: "Good Friends"

Donald Trump tells Larry King that his daughter Ivanka is not dating Lance Armstrong and that the two are "very good friends."

"They talk," Trump said. "I don't think that would be for her and perhaps not for him but he's a great guy but they are friends. I know that and they do talk."

In the interview, which will air on "Larry King Live" tonight (barring breaking news) Trump talks about his daughter's potential suitors ("There is no man that is good enough for her") and how Ivanka's dates are greeted ("Usually with bodyguards, they beat him up").

The Donald even weighed in on the phenomenon that is Paris Hilton: "Paris said she wants to build a brand just like Donald Trump. And I don't know if she's done it the same way but she is smart like a fox. People say, 'Oh, she's not smart, she's not this, she's not that.' She's done a very good job."
