Ever tried to delete a retweet? You can’t do it. You don’t delete / remove a retweeted tweet, you just “undo retweet”. Makes sense. The tweet was never yours. You retweeted it and it just appeared on your timeline just for that reason. So, how can you delete something that’s not yours in first place? Want it removed from your timeline, just undo retweet and you’re done. It disappears from your TL. Simple as that. It’s simpler than trying to locate drafts on Twitter ;).
