Despite the confirmation of two Supreme Court Justices during the Trump administration, there is still not a truly conservative majority. While both of the Trump nominees are solid conservatives, they did not tip the ideological balance of the court. Justice Neil Gorsuch replaced the most conservative justice in a generation, the late Antonin Scalia and Justice Brett Kavanaugh replaced now retired Anthony Kennedy, who was a swing vote on some issues, but reliably conservative on others. Obviously, the new swing vote on the Supreme Court is Chief Justice John Roberts, who saved Obamacare by voting with his liberal colleagues. He ruled that it was somehow a tax even though it was never advertised in that manner.
