Ivanka does reasonably well, actually - she rarely says anything solid, but she's skilled at giving people plenty of room to infer what they want. In theory, she could go far.

Don Jr. comes off as even more of an arrogant and bigoted nitwit than his father. He looks ridiculous, and has a habit of rounding numbers to the nearest 88 (seriously, if he ever uses the number, look up the actual number - it'll always end up being 82, 79, or some such). No chance.
