I like the part where he thought they'd somehow "learn engaging skills" while doing absolutely nothing and that sitting around doing nothing on a professional salary was better than sitting around doing nothing on unemployment.

Cards Against Common Sense
It ain't a bad thing for
Trump and the Republican Party
. Because he gets to point at unemployment statistics from his first term as president, and show everybody that they are at a record low. Following that, if he's replaced by a Democrat president, and that president cancels the wall, the Republican party gets to point at the statistics and show that as soon as the Democrat got in office, unemployment started to skyrocket.
But here's the thing, even if the wall construction stops, and those construction workers sit around on their asses, it's still better for the economy than if those same workers just sat around on their asses on unemployment benefits.
Even if they don't actually do any real work, they'll still get on-paper qualifications from their x months of construction experience, making them more attractive to future private employers.
Additionally, with make-work, some of those workers will even learn actually useful skills, doing nothing

You have no clue how construction work is done, do you? Not an absolute idea. The jobs are going to be in high enough demand that they'll have people with high qualifications (which is going to be matched with taxpayer dime, let me remind you) to begin with stepping over one another to get the jobs; they're not hiring interns. It's pure managerial glut that wastes money.
Moreover, labor markets aren't going to magically be open to all of these construction workers with experience; construction especially is dependent on government-made jobs, which is why it's such a common thing for bills and legislation to be loaded with pork that has unrelated construction jobs in the first place.
>It's still better for the economy that they sit on their asses
Literally the only difference between them sitting on their asses collecting unemployment benefits and sitting on their asses collecting salaries is quantity, which the latter is substantially higher than the former. So no, even by your own logic it's glaringly obvious it's a terrible thing economically.
The economy isn't improved by having jobs rubber-stamped haphazardly; it's quite the opposite. This is why it's a common misconception that war economies are successful; the industrial complex only yields short-term jobs and benefits which is heavily outweighed by long-term debt on top of any damage from the war itself. Same applies with excessive government-projects, even if they're managed optimally that no worker slack is allowed.
