Trump's complete control over the future of the Supreme Court?

Given that the Republicans have a greater hold on the Senate, how many Supreme Court Justices do you figure that Trump will place on the Supreme Court in the next two years until the 2020 presidential elections?

I suspect that Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen G. Breyer will very likely be leaving for various health and age reasons between now and 2020.

@tsarstepan,
Dunno, but in my dreams, they rule against him and he tries to fire one or more for being disloyal.

I am rather ambivalent. Certainly Kavanaugh has seemed never to have grown up, but people get on the court and surprise those who confirmed them. Earl Warren, as Attorney General of California in 1941 called for all the Japanese Americans to be rounded up and put in camps. He later acknowledged that he was the driving force that lead to the Democratic governor signing the internment order. A life-long Republican, Eisenhower appointed him Chief Justice in 1953. He later became a close friend of John Kennedy, however, and in 1962, registered as a Democrat. When I was a kid, you would see billboards by he roadside calling for him to be impeached.

You never really know what you're going to get.

I mean! Look how Ronald Reagan's appointees turned out. They were amazingly moderate on so many issues.
