And with Trump spending weekends both hosting world dignitaries or simply unwinding and playing golf at his resort, a critical source has emerged for news on Trump's whereabouts: Instagram.

On the "Mar-a-Lago" geotag on the social-media site, club members and attendees have posted photos providing public details of Trump's days that otherwise may have gone completely unnoticed outside of the high-society Floridians who saw them firsthand.

The photos — whether taken of prominent guests or Trump family members visiting what the president calls the "Southern White House," of the surroundings, or of Trump himself — show moments that even those in the protective press pool assigned to cover the president have, at times, not been privy to document themselves.

In total, Trump has spent 25 of the first 89 days of his presidency at his Florida club, where he's hosted guests like Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The weekend with Abe featured some of the more important Instagrams posted from the resort. They included Trump looking into the camera with his head on his hand as aides behind him stood as both US and Japanese officials were coordinating a response to a North Korean missile launch. A national-security crisis was taking place, and the response was being discussed in full view of the many club members and guests assembled in a dining area.

In an interview with the Irish Independent, Eric Trump, the president's son, said Mar-a-Lago "has been a very effective tool for [my father] to go down and get to know somebody while not sitting — no different to you wanting to sit next to me on this couch today — not sitting across a wooden partition, which instantly makes a relationship more strenuous."

He compared the resort to President George W. Bush's Crawford, Texas, ranch.

"Bush brought foreign leaders from all over the world [there]," he said. "He would go down to the ranch and they would drive a truck around and they would have fun and they would eat and that was his way of bonding."

An Instagram spokesperson told Business Insider it could not provide data on whether use of the Mar-a-Lago geotag had increased since Trump was inaugurated on January 20.

Here's a look at some of the most interesting photos from the resort that users have posted to Instagram at Mar-a-Lago:

A Peek Inside Donald Trump’s Extravagant Caribbean Estate .
Crystal chandelier? Check. Gold accents? Check. A huge price tag? Check, check. He bought the home, dubbed Le Château des Palmiers, back in 2013. It sits on a five-acre property, which includes a main house, a guest house and an eight-foot-tall gate around it all. According to reports, Trump generally uses this home as a vacation rental, which ranges from $6,000 to $28,000 (around £4,700 - £22,000) per night, depending on the time of year it's being rented. The private pool and Plum Bay beachfront location makes it a dreamy escape for anyone.
